Student driver positions

Each summer, qualified students are hired as official drivers for the vehicles used in our field courses. In addition to driving on caravan trips and daily field work in Montana, official drivers must drive to town on Saturday night a couple times during the course (and that means refraining from drinking alcoholic beverages, a rule that applies at all times when driving).

In addition, they must keep vehicles free of trash and wash them—usually a fun group activity—to help prevent the spread of knapweed. Official drivers are the only students who may drive vehicles on optional recreational excursions on days off.
