Senior Staff Assistant Application  

The Senior Staff Assistant is an integral part of the University’s Greek Court, Eastern's on-campus fraternity and sorority housing complex. As staff members of University Housing & Dining Services, working in conjunction with the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Programs, SSAs are committed to the important task of building community, assisting in the development of an educational environment and supporting the goals of the University.

Senior Staff Assistants serve as liaisons and a resource to students. They promote integration of all aspects of campus life and assist the chapter leadership in establishing an environment in the chapter house that is supportive of the educational objectives of Eastern Illinois University.
