Serving as a Summer Welcome Leader gives you the opportunity to develop your leadership skills, mentor younger students, and share your Mizzou spirit, all while building new friendships that will last a lifetime.
The SWL program is open to current students from all backgrounds, reflecting the diversity of student life at Mizzou.
How to apply
First, attend a SWL informational session, where you’ll receive details on how to submit an application. You must attend one session in order to apply. Sessions for the 2020 SWL program will be held in Middlebush 12 on the following dates during Fall 2019:
- Monday, October 28 at 8 pm

SWL applicants take part in three rounds of interviews. Ideal traits of a Summer Welcome Leader include responsibility, enthusiasm, work ethic, and initiative.
We look for diversity in applicants’ backgrounds, personalities, and campus involvement. The goal is for every new student that participates in Summer Welcome to feel comfortable approaching at least one of the leaders with a question.
