Freshman Move-in Day – Volunteers Needed

move-in-feature-photo-624x361

It’s never too early to start planning for how you can be a part of welcoming our freshmen to UWGB this coming fall! First-year students will move in to campus housing on Sunday, September 2, 8:30 a.m. to Noon. Volunteers should arrive to the Community Center/Office of Residence Life by 8:00 a.m. This year we will also have the assistance of student leaders on move-in day.

Traditionally, faculty, staff and alumni have been on site to assist our new students as they move to campus and take one of their first steps towards completing their education. As you know, this is can be a stressful time for both the student and family/friends who may be assisting them. In the past, our Phoenix families have been very appreciative and relieved to arrive on campus to find conveniently located information tables, staff directing traffic and others awaiting to help tote boxes and bags into the buildings.

The Office of Residence Life is asking that you be one of the volunteers who will both welcome and assist our students with their physical move into student housing. This small gift of your time and energy could have a significant impact on our students’ engagement and retention. If interested, please complete this short Qualtrics form.

On the contact page where it asks for UWGB email address, please list your email address and under the University Address, please list Alumni Relations.

Thank you, in advance, for putting Phoenix first!
