Get Involved

These are various opportunities for you to become involved with GS Student Life:

Four School Programs

Throughout the academic year, GS Student Life collaborates with the Student Life offices at Barnard College, Columbia College, and Columbia Engineering to advise student-led traditions that build community across all four undergraduate schools at the University. These programs include:

  • History and Heritage Months
  • Homecoming
  • Tree Lighting Ceremony
  • Glass House Rocks
  • Bacchanal
  • Senior Week

Student Life Volunteers

Throughout the academic year, GS Student Life and the Dean of Students Office host a variety of events for the GS community in which Student Life volunteers may be involved. These events include GS Planning Day, New Student Orientation, meet & greets, alumni events, memorials, Senior Week, and Graduation. Through their service, volunteers have the opportunity to develop relationships with new and current students and administrators, as well as to foster a welcoming community for GS students.

Time Commitment
This position is ideal for students who want to get involved in GS but cannot commit to an intensive leadership position, as there are a variety of involvement opportunities available with varying time commitments. Volunteers are notified about involvement opportunities via email and are able to volunteer on an event-by-event basis.

Position Requirements

  • Must be a GS student
  • Must be in good academic and disciplinary standing
  • Must be punctual, dependable, and energetic
  • Must possess school spirit and be proud to be a GS student
  • Ability to work in a diverse team environment
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills


If you have any questions regarding the GS Student Life volunteer position or about the application, please email GS Student Life.

NOTE: If you have previously served as a GS Orientation Leader, Junior Marshal, or are a member of a GS focused student organization, you are already a member of the GS Student Life Volunteers mailing list.
