Volunteers Needed for Syracuse Welcome Starting Aug. 20
Some of the earliest memories of joining the Orange family begin the day new students move onto campus. During Syracuse Welcome 2019, faculty and staff are invited to join the Orientation Leaders, Goon Squad and the Office of First-Year and Transfer Programs in continuing the kickoff tradition of greeting and moving new students into their residence halls.
A variety of volunteer times are available for staff and faculty starting Tuesday, Aug. 20, through Thursday, Aug. 22, 2019. Those interested in volunteering are asked to complete the registration form.
“Syracuse University has a longstanding tradition of welcoming new students onto campus; this year marks the 75th anniversary of the Goon Squad,” says Carrie Grogan Abbott, director of the Office of First-Year and Transfer Programs. “Through the support of volunteers and cross-campus partners, we can continue the tradition of welcoming our next class of students and enhancing their experience through Syracuse Welcome.”
As the launch of the Syracuse University student experience, Syracuse Welcome is the required new student orientation program. To aid students in their pursuit of success, Syracuse Welcome encompasses academic and social programs in addition to traditions unique to the University.
