Volunteer for Welcome Week!

Staff and faculty volunteers are needed to assist with several elements of the Welcome Week 2013 program. Join us in making the University of Minnesota a warm and friendly place for new students. A few hours of your time could have a tremendous impact.

Opportunities include:

  • Residence Hall Move-In (Aug. 26-27)
    Greet students and parents, guard belongings, and help with traffic flow.

  • Parent Receptions (Aug. 26-27)
    Have you sent a student off to college recently? Volunteer at Parent Receptions to talk with parents who are moving their students to campus. Address parents' anxieties and celebrate their student's success.

  • New Student Convocation (Aug. 29)
    This campus tradition kicks off the first morning of Welcome Week. We need greeters, direction providers, tassel distributors, and sign holders.

  • Class of 2017 Cookout (Aug. 30)
    We need recycling/compost assistance, direction providers, and greeters.
