Sign up TODAY to volunteer for Welcome Week!

We are expecting over 6,000 first-year students this year and need your help! Registration closes tomorrow, Wednesday, August 16. Staff and faculty are needed for:

  • Residence Hall Move-In (Aug. 28-29) Greet students and parents, guard belongings, and help with traffic flow. Volunteers are not expected to carry luggage or boxes.
  • Move-In Receptions for Families (Aug. 29) Visit with parents and family members at the Move-In Reception for Families at the Bookstore in Coffman. Talk with families moving their students in, answer any last- minutes questions, and help ease their anxieties about this transition. The Parent and Family Program is looking for volunteers across a variety of offices and departments, including those who have recently sent their own family members to college.

Register Here!

Help us welcome students to the U – their new home for the next four years. We need you! More information can be found here.
