Job Description: Part-time, high-energy position requires timing and role-playing of an actor, vocal control of a musician, and flexibility and moves of an accomplished dancer. In other words, it's "show time." Apply in person at all Hilltopper home games. Some travel involved: HillRaisers do spread spirit off the hilltop with bus trips to away games at rival schools.
College sports create a special atmosphere, especially at a Division II school where everyone loves the thrill of competition and playing for team and personal best.
That atmosphere counts on all students to keep it energized. Participation comes in many forms, whether you arrive on campus carrying a sports dream and bag of gear or become part of the dance team or cheerleading squad, or you simply like the fun and camaraderie of supporting your Hilltopper teams from the bleachers.
The 12-member Heartland Conference covers a lot of ground — four states (Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas) that total more than a half-million square miles of the U.S. In the Heartland, you will find public and private schools, ranging from Oklahoma Panhandle State University in tiny Goodwell, Oklahoma (population 1,192) to Dallas Baptist University in the bustling metropolis of Dallas, Texas (population 6.3 million). Supporting your Hilltopper teams is a great way to discover the Heartland beyond Austin.
