Experience summer in Sackville.
Discover another side of MASSIE.
Each summer, the MASSIE Program hires a number of Mount Allison students to serve as live-in residence assistants (RAs).
RAs are assigned single rooms in the Summer MASSIE residence(s) and are responsible for the in-house supervision and care of the program's participants.
RAs play a key role in helping students adjust to and get the most out of their time at Mount Allison. They are there when the students arrive in early May and remain actively involved in the students' daily lives until the program ends in early/mid-August.
The ratio of MASSIE students to residence assistant is generally 7:1. The position doesn't offer a wage per se, but accommodation is provided, a meal allowance is included, and an end-of-summer stipend is awarded.
If you're planning to remain in Sackville over the summer, this is an excellent option to off-set the cost of housing and to make some new and lasting friendships in the process. Previous experience as a MASSIE volunteer and/or Mount Allison residence assistant is an asset.
