Student Staff

Each year, Recreation Services employs a diverse staff of over 175 student OPS (hourly) employees who serve as customer service attendants, lifeguards, group fitness and tennis instructors, intramural officials & scorekeepers, & recreation facility managers. In addition, Recreation Services is an assignment area for College Work Study (CWS) students.

Because jobs with the Rec Center are so popular, applications for Weight Room and Customer Service Attendants are accepted during a short period in the summer for positions beginning in the Fall semester.

The application period for Customer Service and Weight Room Attendants for the 2014-2015 academic year is now closed.

If you have special skills or certifications (i.e. lifeguard, group fitness instructor, or personal trainer), applications, check when applications are being accepted. IM Sports referees are always in demand. See the column on the top right for more info on Sports Officiating.

Employees of the Year represent the best employees from all the different Recreation Services departmental areas and are selected by the professional staff. Recipients of these awards are recognized each year at the Annual Recreation Services Employee Awards Banquet hosted by the Recreation Leadership Team in April.
