Volunteers sought for Syracuse Welcome 2009
Volunteers sought for Syracuse Welcome 2009April 13, 2009Kelly Homan Rodoskikahoman@syr.edu
Planning for Syracuse Welcome 2009, the move-in process in August that will precede the Fall 2009 semester, is currently under way.
Volunteers are again needed for a variety of tasks, such as greeting new students as they arrive on campus at their residence halls; decorating the campus with balloons and signs to show Orange spirit; and assisting with event logistics. More than 3,200 students are expected to arrive in August, and the volunteer efforts of staff, faculty, alumni and friends will ensure they begin their collegiate experience feeling welcomed into the Syracuse University community.
Organizers are also seeking student volunteers for the Goon Squad, a group of SU students who help first year and transfer students move into residence halls. Goon Squad members are the first faces that new students and families see when they arrive on campus.
Those who are interested in volunteering this year should visit http://swvolunteers.syr.edu to learn more about the available opportunities and to access the online volunteer registration form. Volunteers must be registered by Aug. 1.
For more information about volunteer opportunities, contact the Office of First Year and Transfer Programs at 443-1012 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
