Move-In Crew Volunteers Needed!

All Faculty and Staff, 

The Office of Residence Life and Housing invites you to participate in one of the most exciting and memorable days of the year: Move-In Day!  Move-In Day for first year and transfer students is Wednesday August 23, 2017.  Move-In Day for returning students is Saturday, August 26, 2017. 

As Move-In Volunteers, you will welcome our new and returning students and their families, help unload cars, carry suitcases and boxes, and enjoy the energy that comes with the first day of students for the academic year.   

New Student Move-In begins with a Faculty/Staff volunteers sign in table at Mason/Randolph Halls.  Volunteers should arrive by 7:30am, sign-in, get a Move-In Crew t-shirt, and head out to an assigned residence hall.  Students and families will be moving in from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.  We ask that you stay until at least 12:00 noon, or longer because you’ll be having fun! The time goes by quickly and it is extremely fun! 

Returning Student Move-In will begin with a Faculty/Staff volunteers sign in table at the William Street Apartments.  Volunteers who did not participate on Wednesday will need to sign-in, get a Move-In Crew t-shirt, and then will head out to an assigned residence hall.  Volunteers who participate on Wednesday who volunteer on Saturday will be given an assignment prior to arriving on Saturday morning via e-mail.     

If you would like to participate on these special days but you cannot commit to the physical work, sign up to be a Greeter!  Greeters will work with Student Housing staff at the check-in tables and in the halls welcoming students and families and helping them feel like they are home!
