Housing Coordinator

Submitted by Jane Daniels on Sat, 06/09/2018 - 01:30
General Description: 

Being in charge of housing is a job that requires tact, diplomacy, and being able to trouble shoot. You will need to interact with someone at the college and deal with lost keys and people being locked out of their rooms. On the plus side, you will meet lots of people who love the AT and your responsibilities are primarily at the conference. . Housing assignments will be done by registrars as it is easiest to do when people are registering. For information on how the job was done in 2007, see the Housing report.
