It’s time for Welcome Week 2014!  Acclimating new students to the University of Southern Indiana is a campus-wide effort.  The Office of Student Development Programs and the Department of Housing and Residence Life are looking for enthusiastic, fun-loving, and red-white-and-blue-wearing volunteers!  Not only is volunteering a rewarding experience, but it gives you a break from your everyday routine for an opportunity to begin making connections with the newest members of our screaming eagles family!

We are looking for volunteers to staff the UC Information Desk, the Welcome Tents, and to help with our big Move-in efforts for our new students.  The following is what each task requires of you. Click on the links to learn more detailed information regarding each volunteer opportunity.

UC West Information Table – Staff an Information Table in University Center West and answer questions of new students.  Often this includes giving directions. (Available for faculty, staff, and alumni.)

Welcome Tents – Staff one of the Welcome Tents while you provide directions and answer questions.  Refreshments are provided at each tent for new students who need a snack between classes. (Available for faculty, staff, and alumni.)

Move-in – Assign yourself to a residence hall or apartment and assist new students while they move in.  This task requires some lifting, but mostly pushing luggage tubs from the car to the student’s new home. (Available for faculty, staff, alumni, and students.)

Team Captains – Another opportunity for you to get involved with Housing Move-in is our Team Captain positions! Team Captains will work all morning or all afternoon at a residence hall or freshman apartments and coordinate our volunteer efforts.

Specific information about volunteering and volunteer registration will be available in July 2014.
