Around Labor Day Weekend? Please help with Campus Move-in

Will you and your family members be around Labor Day Weekend? Could you spare a few hours? Residence Life could sure use your help welcoming our freshmen class to UW-Green Bay. First-year students will move in to their assigned housing on Sunday, Sept. 1, from 8 a.m. – Noon. Traditionally, faculty, staff, and now student leaders 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. This 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 by Friday, May 24.
