Two coordinators work with the Director to train the GWOW staff and plan, coordinate and budget for GWOW signature and co-sponsored events, and help facilitate the transition of new and returning students during the fall semester. To be a coordinator, there is an application process and individual interview. Applicants must be full-time undergraduate students. While prior GWOW staff experience is encouraged, it is not necessary if an applicant has strong programming experience.
Coordinator applications normally appear mid-October and are due at the end of October. Individual interviews are conducted in November, and applicants receive a decision by the end of November. Applicants cannot have plans to study abroad in the spring semester or during the summer before GWOW.
Coordinators must be at a one-hour weekly staff meetings and commit their time to tasks throughout the fall and spring semesters, including recruiting and training the incoming staff. All coordinators will be housed on campus during the summer and are expected to work part-time in the GWOW office in June and July. These two months ramp up to August and September, when GWOW events begin.
Welcome Ambassadors (WAs)
There are approximately 25 Welcome Ambassadors (WAs) who are responsible for a host of activities in their efforts to make GWOW's signature events as great as possible for all Hoyas. WAs engage new and returning students with Georgetown during the transitional period at the start of the academic year. By joining GWOW, a Welcome Ambassador will gain valuable skills and experience while enriching the Georgetown community. Everyone who fills out the interest form and is dedicated to enriching the fall transition to campus will become a member of the GWOW team.
WA interest forms normally appear early February and are due early-March. Students who are abroad during the Spring semester are invited to apply, but may be asked to attend meetings online or find an alternative. WAs are required to be at two mandatory training and orientation meetings.
