Faculty and Staff Volunteers

Volunteers are needed to greet new students and their families during move-in, decorate the campus, and assist with a variety of social events. Approximately 3,700 new first-year and transfer students are expected to arrive in August and your volunteer efforts will ensure they begin their SU experience on the right foot. We welcome all SU faculty, staff, alumni and friends to volunteer, so please feel free to spread the word!

All faculty, staff, and alumni volunteers are asked to attend one volunteer information session in the summer.  Volunteer information sessions for Syracuse Welcome 2018 will be held:

Thursday, August 2, 9am-10am, Schine 304ABC

Tuesday, August 7, 9am-10am, Schine 304ABC

Volunteers will be sent an email to register for a training session.

Register now to become a Syracuse Welcome 2018 Volunteer.


If you have questions about the volunteer sign-up process, please contact the Office of First-Year and Transfer Programs at 315-443-1012 or via email at newtosu@syr.edu.

All current students looking to volunteer for Syracuse Welcome should join the Goon Squad.
