Get Involved! Become a Jack Walker!

Get Involved! Become a Jack Walker!

By far, the best decision you could possibly make throughout your college career is whether or not you should get involved on campus! Here at SFA, we offer over 200 various Student Organizations, ranging from Greek life to organizations pertaining to your major! Since Jack Walker applications are right around the corner, think about becoming a Jack Walker!  Being a Jack Walker is a great way to get involved on campus, create connections, meet some pretty cool friends, and become connected to SFA! Take it from our Senior Jack Walker Arden! Here is what she has to say about getting involved and why you too should be a Jack Walker!!!

Arden has been involved in: 
- Jack Camp, Counselor
- A Jack Walker
- Delta Delta Delta Sorority, Alumni
- Certified Campus Recreation Lifeguard since 2014

What advice would you give to students looking to get involved? 
"Try everything at least once! Keep an open mind! One of the best things about college is having endless amounts of opportunity to try new things!"

Why do you think students on campus should try to become a Jack Walker?
"It gives you the opportunity to share your individual Lumberjack experience with perspective students and families! It can't get any cooler than that!"

Get involved and think about becoming a Jack Walker! 
Just a reminder that applications will be available, next week, October 30th, 2018 at 8:00 am on the Second floor of the Rusk building in the Office of Admissions (206)!

Our first Interest Meeting will be next week on Wednesday, October 31st from 6-7 pm in Liberal Arts North room 142! Hope to see you there!

Are You Interested in Becoming a Jack Walker?

Are you interested in becoming a Jack Walker?

If so, then keep on reading! If not, I can guarantee that you'll want to after you read this post!

What is a Jack Walker?
We are the Tour Guides/Life Changers on campus. We are responsible for helping families and guests get the most out of the Lumberjack and Campus Experience.  Being a Jack Walker is a very prestigious position on campus but even more than that, a very integral part of the decision making process for prospective students. It’s what we do – we are many times the first face families see and/or have interaction with the Stephen F. Austin State University Campus.  We ‘walk the walk and talk the talk’ because not only are the Jack Walkers true Lumberjack fans who support SFA, we are leaders on campus and truly believe in this institution.  We are here to give prospective students the Lumberjack Experience not just with a campus tour but with overall customer service and a full Campus Experience.

How do I apply?
Applications will be available October 30th, 2018 at 8:00 am on the Second floor of the Rusk building in the Office of Admissions. The applications are due Tuesday, November 13th, 2018 at 4:00 pm and must be turned into the Admissions office front desk.

How to get more information
An opportunity to gain information will be the week of November 5th-November 9th where we will have a table outside of the Baker Patillo Student Center from 10 am-3 pm! There will be Jack Walkers at the table handing out applications and answering questions.
If you're looking for more in-depth information on what it takes to be a Jack Walker, attend one of our three interest meetings! The interest meetings will be on the following dates: October 31st, November 6th, and November 8th.  Time and Location of the interest meetings will be announced on all social media platforms.  Although it is not required to attend an interest meeting to be a Jack Walker, know that these meetings will allow you to gain more information and will allow us to get to know you!
