Volunteers sought to help settle residence students

UWindsor students and employees can help newcomers join the campus community during Residence Move-in Day, organizers say.

“Volunteers can help by greeting and welcoming students and families, helping move boxes and providing directions,” says Lynn Charron, team lead of Residence Life. “It’s a great day to show off your Lancer and University of Windsor pride and show our new students what a wonderful place this is to live and learn!”

She calls the event, which will see hundreds of new and returning students take up residence in one of the University’s four halls, a memorable and exciting day.

“We need all the help we can get from faculty, staff and student volunteers to help the day run as smoothly as possible,” Charron says.

Move-in day 2016 is set for Sunday, September 4, and volunteers are needed from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., but are not required to work the entire day. “Any amount of time is appreciated,” she says.
