Can I take summer courses and be an RRC Staff Member?

Due to the nature of the job, you may not take courses during the Summer II session. As an RRC Staff Member, you will be in Brownwood, Texas the last few weeks of Summer II. However, you may take courses during the Summer I session.

Can I still be an RRC Staff member if my GPA is below a 2.5?

If you personally speak with the Program Manager and can have your GPA at/above a 2.5 by the end of the Spring semester, you may be granted an exception. There is no guarantee.

Do all applicants get invited to the group interview?

Applicants who meet the basic requirements will be invited to the group interview. Basic requirements include submitting a completed application, being a full time undergraduate student for spring and fall, and meeting the minimum 2.5 GPA requirement.

I cannot come to the group interview, should I still apply?

As this is a special circumstance, you will need to email redraidercamp@ttu.edu to make arrangements. Don't let not being able to attend the group interview stop you from applying until after communicating with the Program Manager.

Does everyone get an individual interview?

No. Individual interviews are granted based on basic requirements, applications, and the group interview.

Do I have to attend the training sessions?

Yes. Every member of The Red Raider Camp Staff must attend the trainings and weekend trips to Brownwood, Texas. This is your opportunity to get to know the fellow RRC staff members you will be working with at camp and become low ropes course certified.
