Student Life Fellowship Leaders are at the heart and soul of Rochester College. As part of the Student Life Leadership program, each fellowship leader participates in one of four possible Leadership tracks; Student Engagement, Community Living, Spiritual Formation, or Student Care. As proven student leaders in these areas, Fellowship students are very approachable, friendly, relational, and amongst the most successful RC students on campus.
The ideal Fellowship Leader demonstrates excellent interpersonal communication skills, enthusiasm for the college, proven leadership abilities, positivity, sound judgment, and reliability. They are Rochester College’s essential student leaders and embody the best of the College.
The program includes a rigorous application and interview process. Students who achieve this honor undergo comprehensive training to prepare them to assist with college events as official hosts, both on and off campus.
In this way, a Fellowship Leader’s responsibility includes serving as a Warrior ambassador. As ambassadors, each Fellowship Leader supports the Admissions Office in the exciting work of engaging with prospective students and families from the point a new Warrior is admitted until the end of the First Year Experience.
Fellowship Leaders gain leadership and real work experiences in the areas of Marketing, Public Relations, Public Speaking, Branding, Team Building, pastoral care, and the management of others. Working in the Center for Student Life and closely with the Admissions Office, Fellows are genuinely interested in the development and success of the college and new students.
