OWL Coordinator Info

The Ohio State Welcome Leader (OWL) program provides opportunities for residence hall students who value leadership and helping others to participate in the residence hall Move-In process.

The Office of Student Life - Residence Life is looking for student leaders who are familiar with campus, have a desire to help lead a small group of OWLs and facilitate building relationships while training peers for duties on Move-In day. We're also looking for individuals who have a desire to grow as leaders through an extended training before OWLs arrive.

You do not have to have previous experience with OWL to apply to be an OWL Coordinator (OWL-C).

OWL Coordinators who will live off-campus will need to secure housing, as we do not provide temporary housing.

 

Job Description

  • Participate in OWL leadership training
  • OWL-Coordinators report to Area Coordinators and communicate with them often
  • Act as a support and resource for OWLs throughout the program and Move-In
  • Give OWLs guidance and answer any questions they may have about OWL and Move-In
  • Act as liaisons between OWL Leadership and OWLs
