Get Involved

Sign-up to Volunteer for GOT QUESTIONS by August 25

New Student Orientation & Support Programs is seeking volunteers for their GOT QUESTIONS initiative. This campaign requires many faculty and staff located strategically on both campuses to welcome incoming students during the first week of classes.

Volunteers get a free button and t-shirt to wear during the program. These items will help identify you as someone who can provide student support like directions to a class or building. Volunteers can sign up for as many shifts as desired, but please do not submit all of your available time slots – only select the shifts you wish to commit to.

Deadline to sign up is August 25. Sign up today.

For questions, contact Debbie Becker, assistant director of New Student Orientation & Support Programs, at 598-2648.
