Please list the individuals whom you have asked to provide written references on your behalf. You will need to print or e-mail 2 copies of the reference form found on this website to the individuals you have selected as your references. If you currently live on campus, a CA or Maverick Mentor is preferred or other members of the Residential Life staff that know you well and can speak to your skills and abilities (i.e. Hall Director, Apartment Community Director, Academic Programming Coordinator, Student Service Coordinator, etc.). Otherwise, a person who understands the nature of the Maverick Mentor position is most appropriate as a reference. Relatives, family members, friends or roommates should not be used as references. The Department of Residential Life may also contact people not listed as a reference. If you applied to be a CA/ACA you do not need to submit additional references.

I understand that before I can be selected and hired as a Maverick Mentor, the Department of Residential Life will verify my academic and conduct standing. I understand that an employment offer is contingent upon satisfactory completion of the background check. I further understand that to be considered for a Maverick Mentor position and to maintain employment as a Maverick Mentor for the 2014-2015 academic year, I must:
  • have and maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.5 and a semester GPA of at least 2.5 each semester.
  • have and maintain a 12-18 hour course credit load per semester (6-12 for graduate students).
  • have and maintain good conduct standing (i.e. not be on University disciplinary probation after May 9, 2014 or not be placed on probation for spring semester 2014 for an incident occurring after any part of this application being submitted).
To the best of my knowledge, the information submitted on this application is true and correct. I realize any falsification can subject me to disqualification as an applicant.

After this application is submitted to the Department of Residential Life, it is the exclusive property of Minnesota State Mankato.
