The job opportunities listed below are available to undergraduate and graduate students at Georgia Tech.
Challenge is OMED’s signature academic preparation program. It is a five-week intensive program that is held every summer for incoming freshmen. In Challenge, students are immersed in the Georgia Tech environment; they live in a freshman dorm, take classes provided by Georgia Tech professors, and participate in social and academic workshops provided by upperclassmen.
Challenge Counselors are a significant part of the Challenge program. Challenge Counselors reside in the dorms with Challenge participants. Challenge Counselors serve as role models, peer mentors, and campus success coaches to incoming freshmen and assistants to OMED staff throughout the five-week intensive summer program.
Edge is a year-long peer mentoring program designed to support incoming students – both freshmen and transfers – during their first year at Georgia Tech. Incoming students are paired with a successful upperclassman, or Edge Leader, who serves as a peer mentor and offers support to help new students acclimate academically and socially during their first year.
OMED Tutors are the driving force behind our broad Academic Support resources. Tutors are highly motivated graduate and undergraduate students with a desire to positively impact their campus community.
OMED Tutors (or study session facilitators) work predefined hours each week, either in Clough Commons Room 278 or the Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion’s Chapin Building (681 Cherry Street NW, Atlanta, GA 30332).
Student Ambassadors are comprised of professionally motivated student leaders at OMED, specifically Challenge Counselors and Edge Leaders. These ambassadors engage students by serving as strong advocates for OMED and serve as professional representatives sharing their experience and enthusiasm with a variety of constituents, including current and prospective students and their families, faculty, staff, alumni, and strategic partners and supporters.
Student Ambassadors also serve as advisors to the OMED staff by providing vital information regarding student organizations and various other departments on campus.
