Campus Recreation is hiring for the Spring 24 Semester!

We want motivated and responsible students to work at Campus Rec this Spring.

Need a certification? We can train you! 

All employees must be current students, registered for Spring 2024. We offer part-time hours during the academic year and full time hours during the winter/summer. We will work around class schedules, but all staff must be able to work a minimum of 10 hours (part-time), and 32 hours (full-time). Full time staff get free housing at the Village of the summer.

Currently certified lifeguards – we accept all major certifications, and can recertify you for free. 

Non-certified students – Students that are not currently certified can take a pretest for free, before you register for a lifeguard training course. If you pass the pretest, then we will certify you for free. If you can work full-time, we may also be able to offer free housing for the summer (space is limited, so this option is first-come, first-serve).
