Volunteers Sought for Move-in Weekend

Welcoming new students to campus is one of the most exciting and energizing times of the year. At Michigan Tech, it has become a tradition to invite all faculty and staff to help welcome our new students to campus in August during move-in weekend.

Everyone is invited to take advantage of this opportunity to meet new students and their families, provide a friendly face to offer directions, help unload a plasma TV or a case of Mountain Dew, but most importantly welcome students to their new home and Michigan Tech family.

Volunteer shifts for faculty, staff and interested spouses, partners and family members are available on Saturday, Aug. 24 and Sunday, Aug. 25. Please visit the volunteer registration website at Move-in Registration to sign up. You will be asked to provide the information needed for your volunteer experience including when you would like to volunteer, what role you would like to have, your personal contact information and your t-shirt size. Please note that you may volunteer for more than one shift.

Please show your support as a dedicated and caring member of the Michigan Tech community by welcoming our newest members. Thank you in advance for your support of this initiative, and go Huskies!

Please register by July 30 at Move-in Registration.
