Host-Hostess Position Description

The Old Masters Hosts and Hostesses, are 50 of Purdue's most enthusiastic and dedicated student leaders.  They are selected based on their completion and performance in an extensive petition and interview process, after which they begin their six-week Old Masters training.  The Host and Hostess Boot Camp consists of weekly meetings centered on program preparation and project presentations.  These meetings allow the Host and Hostesses to get to know each other, their Old Masters, and the format of the program.  Each meeting builds upon the previous week as the Host and Hostesses complete creative projects detailing their Old Master's achievements and the program itself.  There are five Hosts assigned to each Old Master. These students serve as their Old Master's liaisons for the week, accompanying them to classroom talks, lunch engagements, and evening banquets.
