  • Gate crew - Welcome participants to Slope Day; check wristbands and distribute water. Volunteers needed at Cornell Health, North and South Gates
  • SlopeFest - An alcohol-free activity fair on Ho Plaza.
  • Gap coverage and Check-point - Staff and faculty volunteers are really needed here to cover the areas between the gates and make sure everyone is safe.
  • ID checkers  - ID checkers will be required to attend a training prior to the day of the event.
  • Wristband distribution - Founders Hall- assisting in students and their guests pick-up of Slope Day wristbands in order to enter the activity.
