SAINTS Selection



Dear S.A.I.N.T.S. Applicant:

I am delighted that you are considering a position on the SAINTS team. Your willingness to apply for this position indicates your desire to grow as a leader. Whether you are a returning applicant or someone new to the orientation experience, it is my hope that you indeed develop your leadership skills through the selection process and orientation program. The S.A.I.N.T.S. position is, without a doubt, one of the most desired and sought after student positions on our campus. It carries with it a high degree of respect, and an even greater degree of responsibility. The expectations are very high, but incredibly rewarding. New Student Orientation takes place just prior to the start of classes, and a substantial training is required to adequately prepare the staff. Compensation for the New Student Orientation Staff (S.A.I.N.T.S.) will include housing and meals as well as a monetary stipend.

New Student Orientation is a program designed to help our newest students become familiar with our campus while gearing up for both academic and social success. This structured five-day program will take place just before classes begin in the fall and includes discussions with student leaders, student success workshops, and multiple opportunities to meet other new students, both on-campus and during off-campus excursions. New students often report that the orientation experience assured them Siena College was the right choice and really prepared them for the fall. The S.A.I.N.T.S. serve a crucial role in facilitating the program and easing the transition of our first year students when they arrive for the fall semester.

S.A.I.N.T.S. welcome new students to the Siena campus before the fall semester begins with professionalism, warmth, and energy. S.A.I.N.T.S. try to minimize anxiety, promote positive attitudes, and stimulate the excitement of learning in all new students and their families, while exhibiting the true Siena spirit.

Included on the website is an overview of the selection process and terms of employment for this position. Before you pursue your application further, I strongly suggest that you carefully review this information so that you can proceed with a full understanding of the requirements of the process and program.

You have my personal best wishes for success! Please do not hesitate to contact me should you need clarification or have a question.
