opportunities to take part in the recruitment process for future students.
The interns were chosen from 33 candidates who completed an extensive application
process, with 12 finalists selected for multi-stage interviews. Each finalist
prepared a brief presentation and interviewed with a team of senior students,
a group of admissions counselors and the Vice President and Dean of Admissions
and Financial Aid Terry Cowdrey. Finalists are Graham Gauthier '07, of Canton,
NY; John Gursky '07, of Baldwinsville, NY; Tim Morse '07, of Copenhagen, NY;
Michaela Stewart '08, of Averill Park, NY; Danielle Weaver '07, of Jamestown,

Interns' responsibilities include leading campus tours, making personal
contacts with prospective students and facilitating online chats. The internship
will also include meetings with the University's Senior Staff and undertaking
projects such as analyzing the international database, providing feedback on
the admissions and financial aid Web site, developing new recruitment
initiatives and participating in an environmental analysis of the admissions
office. The internship will incorporate a series of workshops on a variety
of topics that have an impact upon the admissions, recruitment and selection
processes, including the admissions calendar, territory management, travel
planning, publications and marketing, interviews and application review.
