Volunteers Needed for December 11th Commencement
Commencement is always a special occasion for our institution, and we want the University community to celebrate with the graduates and their guests. Therefore, we are asking for volunteers on Commencement Day, Friday, December 11th to take part in this memorable event. We will have two ceremonies (10 am and 2:30 pm) in Reed Green Coliseum. The graduating class consists of approximately 1,000 students and we anticipate another 5,000 guests to be on campus throughout the day.
Volunteers are needed for 2-hour shifts in the following areas:
1. To give directional help to graduates and their guests to Reed Green Coliseum
2. To transport via golf carts from parking lots to the coliseum (Volunteers will need access to departmental golf cart and training is preferred.)
3. To take pictures at photo locations around campus (using the guests’ cameras/phones – you do not have to be a professional photographer!)
4. To greet and direct guests in and around the coliseum
If you are interested in serving as a volunteer, please register by December 1 on the Commencement Volunteer Form and we will follow up with you on your assignment.
