Welcome Week 2018 Volunteers

Volunteer to help make Welcome Week a huge success!

Welcome Week is being held August 16-19 and is a great way to introduce new students to the University of Louisville! We certainly can't do it all on our own and are very appreciative of all the help from our friends around campus. Below you will find a list of the events we will need help staffing at Welcome Week. These are in addition to any events you may be asked to work through your unit/department.

Cardinal Kickoff SHIFT: 3:30pm-6:15pm Join us for the official kickoff as we celebrate the start of Welcome Week with students and their families. You'll be helping us greet students and families.
Kick Back in the Stacks SHIFT: 6:30pm-9:00pm The Library comes to life with a dramatic mix of dancers, magicians and other novelty performers; BINGO; interactive service project; a photo station; scavenger hunt; local food samples and MORE! Students will learn about the Library and other important campus resources. Discover. Explore. Be amazed!
Commuter & Transfer Student Gathering SHIFT: 6:00pm-7:30pm First Year Initiatives, REACH and Transfer Services welcome students to campus during this interactive session about making the most of their UofL experience. Here they have the opportunity to meet other new commuter and transfer students. Upperclass students who’ve recently been in their shoes will offer their best tips and answer questions as students prepare for their first semester at UofL.
