Volunteers needed to help new students as they arrive Aug. 18

2016 Move-In Weekend: Volunteers help new students and their families find their way around campus.

Volunteers are needed for Cornell opening day, Aug. 18, when almost 4,000 new undergraduate students and their families will arrive on campus. Volunteers are needed to help direct new students and their families in and around Barton Hall for New Student Check-In, where students will pick up their Cornell ID card and learn about services and opportunities available at the university.

Faculty and staff assistance also is needed to help distribute ID cards and share directions and campus information with visitors.

All volunteers will receive a volunteer T-shirt and lunch.

Supervisory approval is needed for volunteer hours that coincide with scheduled work hours as they will be considered paid release time; if volunteer hours fall outside of scheduled work hours, they will be without pay.

Sign up to volunteer by Aug. 5 or contact Marisa LaFalce at mfp1@cornell.edu or 607-255-2373.
