Volunteers who wish to help new students move into the residence halls can register in the Natali Student Center Lobby beginning at 8:30 a.m. Aug. 25.

Volunteers do NOT need to register in advance; they will be given a residence hall assignment and a complimentary T-shirt (while supplies last).

Because Move-In-Day falls on a work day, staff cannot volunteer unless they use leave time.
