Our department employs two Graduate Assistants. The two GAs supervise the smaller traditional residence halls (Laurel & University Apartments).

A GA directly oversees the daily operation of one small residence hall. This includes, but is not limited to, supervision of student staff employees, programming, enforcement of rules and regulations, and first-level counseling of students.

A GA receives a $5,000 stipend per academic year, 100% PA-state tuition waiver (up to 9 credits per semester) and a free furnished apartment with utilities.

I encourage you to carefully review the Graduate Assistant job description before applying for the Graduate Assistant position(s).

If you have any questions about the position or selection process, please do not hesitate to contact Kelly- 570-422-3105 or

If you are interested in being considered for a GA position, you will need to apply during the period we are accepting applications (typically in March). Please regularly check the ESU Employment Website.

Applicants must have prior residence hall employment experience in order to be considered for this position. Applicants may not be in a graduate program that requires excessive time commitments away from campus (such as Clinical Exercise Physiology, Speech-Language Pathology, Student Teaching, etc.).
