RHS Interviews 2013

Thank you for applying to work in the Residence Halls with MSU UB this summer.  There are a few things you need to do for the interview.  Please find that information listed below:
  • One of our staff members has a severe allergy to scented chemicals, so please do not wear perfume, scented lotions, cologne, body spray, etc. to your interview.  
  • Read the information below the grid below.
  • Watch the following video:  UB Video.  This is a recruiting video we show to potential new UB students.
  • If you've not already done so, complete the MSU application.   The application is available here:  http://jobs.moreheadub.org/msu-application
  • Bring a copy of your transcript if not already previously submitted.
All interviews will be in Waterfield Hall.  You will need to wait in the lobby and someone will come and get you to escort you to the interview room.  Please note that the front doors to the building remain locked so it will be easiest if you enter the west side of building where the wheelchair ramp is located.  Once you enter that door, the lobby will be straight down that hall.  We will have signs posted to help direct you.  

We look forward to meeting you.  Please let us know if you have any questions by contacting us at upwardbound@moreheadstate.edu or by calling (606) 783-2611.

Below are the times of the scheduled interviews.  To confirm your scheduled time we have listed the time slots for the week of March 4-8, 2013.  To confirm your interview appointment use the first two letters of your first name and the first and last letter of your last name in the grid below.

Program Overview:
  • The Upward Bound Program has been at MSU since 1966.  There are currently 2 Classic Upward Bound Programs and an Upward Bound Math & Science Program.  The goal of the program is to motivate and prepare high school students to enroll and succeed in postsecondary education.
  • Students must meet income requirements as determined by the U.S. Department of Education and/or must be a potential first generation college student.  Additionally, UB Math & Science students must have an interest or aptitude in the math/science fields.
  • The three grant programs combined serve approximately 273 students.  The Classic Program serves students from Boyd, Carter, Elliott, Fleming, Johnson, Lawrence, Magoffin, Mason, Menifee, Morgan, and Rowan counties.  UBMS serves students from these schools in addition to Lewis county.
  • Students are chosen to participate during their freshmen or sophomore years in high school.  They continue participation through high school graduation.
What we do:
  • During the Academic Year Component, students are visited twice a month by Upward Bound staff.  Students participate in critical thinking activities and are offered academic counseling.  One Saturday a month students are brought to MSU’s campus where they focus on academic courses, ACT prep, college orientation, peer tutoring, and financial aid.
  • During the Summer Component, the students arrive on campus for a 6-week program designed to simulate the college experience.  The first week is non-residential, followed by 5 weeks residential.  During the day students attend classes and in the evenings they participate in a wide variety of activities including activity nights, guest speakers, dances, free nights, and “Tribe night”.  “Tribe night” involves a small group of students and volunteer mentors who will meet once a week to participate in fun activities together.  Students also participate in field trips to places such as King’s Island, college visits, and Juniors go on an end of the summer trip.
