Faculty, Staff, and Alumni 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 2017 will be on Wednesday, August 2nd and Tuesday, August 8th at 9am in the Schine Student Center Room 304.

Registration to become a Syracuse Welcome 2017 Volunteer is closed

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

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