This event cannot happen without the help of our campus community. Every year we need over 50 volunteers to set up, clean up, assist with the entertainment stage, serve food, direct people, and fulfill many other volunteer tasks. This is a great opportunity for students, staff, and faculty to meet new people and greet our new and returning students! Please help us by volunteering your time between the hours of 10AM -3PM.
