Residence Move-In Day - Volunteers Wanted!

Do you want to meet and greet incoming students as they make the leap to independence? Do you love recycling and have a passion for reducing waste on campus? Do you like free food and swag? We are seeking volunteers to help out at Residence Move-In Day on Sunday, September 2, and we would love your help!

Residence move-in and move-out days are notorious for producing a massive amount of landfill waste due largely to a lack of information and assistance available for students and families who are in the middle of a stressful and important day in their lives!

The Job:

  • Direct new students and their families to recycling complexes
  • Teach new students and their families how to sort their waste properly
  • Hand out pamphlets at our table
  • Enjoy a FREE BBQ lunch!
