Student Audio-Visual Technicians are a part of the Event Services Office. They provide technical support for a wide range of events, concerts, films, and conferences. Responsibilities include the set-up and operation of A/V equipment such as data projection, audio amplification, and general theatrical lighting. Students are required to attend weekly staff meetings and should be available for evening and weekend shifts. Customer service is integral to this position. Entry Level technicians require basic familiarity with computers and audio/visual equipment and interfaces, with more specific and advanced skills being learned 'on-the-job' with appropriate training. Students will begin by training with and assisting more experienced full-time and student technicians, with the expectation of working independently thereafter.
Students participate in experiences outside the classroom which allow them to develop and demonstrate life skills. These skills and characteristics for success and citizenship are learned and refined during their college years and beyond. The Office for Student Affairs has developed seven Student Development Outcomes that the Student Unions & Activities has incorporated into the student employment system in the Unions. Here is a listing of the Student Development Outcomes with some examples of how you can learn or further develop your own skills set.
