  • Welcome Week/housing move-in volunteers needed

    Sign up to volunteer

    It won’t be long until Welcome Week 2018!  Acclimating new students to the University of Southern Indiana is a campus-wide effort.  Student Development Programs and Housing and Residence Life are looking for enthusiastic, fun-loving, and red-white-and-blue-wearing volunteers!  Not only is volunteering a rewarding experience, but it gives you a break from your everyday routine for an opportunity to begin making connections with the newest members of our screaming eagles family!

    We are looking for volunteers to staff the UC Information Desk, the Welcome Tents, and to help with our big move-in efforts for our new students.  Below is a brief description of each volunteer opportunity. More detailed information may be found at  

    UC West Information Table – Staff the Information Table (August 16, August 17, August 20, or August 21, 2018) in the University Center West and answer questions of new students. Often this includes giving directions. 

    Welcome Tents – Staff one of the Welcome Tents (August 20 and 21, 2018) where you will provide directions and answer questions.  Refreshments are provided at each tent for new students who need a snack between classes by Sodexo.

    Move-In – Assign yourself to a residence hall or the freshmen apartment area in McDonald West and assist new students while they move in on Thursday, August 16, 2018. This task requires some lifting, but mostly pushing luggage tubs from the car to the student’s new home. Volunteers with Move-In will receive a free t-shirt to wear that day. Signing up by July 30, 2018 will guarantee you the correct shirt size.

    To register, click on the link below and login with your myUSI login credentials. You will be asked to fill out some brief contact information before selecting the volunteer shift you would like to work. Each volunteer time will tell you how many volunteers we still need for that particular shift. If you need to make changes to your volunteer registration, simply log back into the form and make your changes. 

    If you need assistance, please contact the following: 
    Housing Move-In Volunteers: or 812-468-2000
