Fall Move-In Volunteers

Thank you so much for your interest in joining the Welcome Team for Fall 2019! This is an exciting opportunity to welcome new and returning GW students to our campus and community, and assist in the transition as they move on-campus in August.

There are a few options for volunteer shift combinations, and all volunteers must work two shifts.

You can volunteer for the following shift combinations:

  • One shift on Sunday, August 18 (3-4 hours) and one shift on Wednesday, August 21 (3-4 hours). You may move in starting Saturday, August 17.
  • Two shifts on Wednesday, August 21 (6-8 hours total). You may move in starting Tuesday, August 20.
  • One shift on Wednesday, August 21 (3-4 hours) and one shift on Saturday, August 24 (3-4 hours). You may move in starting Tuesday, August 20.

To be eligible, all applicants must be in good standing with the University and cannot currently be on disciplinary probation. Additionally, if an individual signs up to participate on the Welcome Team, moves back to campus on their early arrival date, and does not complete both volunteer shifts, they will be charged the $100 pay by night fee based on their arrival date.

All Welcome Team volunteers must wear their provided Welcome Team shirt for both shifts, and when signing up, must indicate that they are able to lift 30 pounds. Incoming first year students and newly admitted transfer students are not eligible to volunteer on the Welcome Team. The Welcome Team volunteer application is open now through July 15, 2019 at 12:00 pm, and Welcome Team applicants will be notified of their status no later than July 26, 2019 at 5:00 pm.
