Volunteers for First-Year Student Orientation



Please join us as we welcome the Class of 2018 to Muhlenberg! Your presence will send a message to our new students and their families that they are embarking on a wonderful experience at Muhlenberg College! There are many ways to help from Move-In Day to Trivia Challenge.

What will volunteers do?

You can participate in any or all of the activities.

Move-In Day - Meet us in Seegers Union 15 minutes prior to your assigned shift to get your assignment in one of the "move-in" lines. As students from the Class of 2018 and their families wait in their cars, you will be the first face of the College they see as they prepare to move into their dorms. You will be offering them beverages, answers to their questions and words of encouragement and welcome.

Lunch - After everyone moves in....join other alumni volunteers for lunch and reminisce about your own move-in experience as a freshman.

Dinner - Join the staff and other alumni volunteers for dinner before beginning to set up for the evening activities.

Evening Setup - First a casual dinner followed by set up for the Candle Lighting Ceremony and Trivia Challenge. 

Candle Lighting Ceremony - Represent our alumni community by participating in the ceremony from the steps of Haas. As they face you, the freshmen will see before them the alumni community that they will one day join.

Trivia Challenge - Help with setup and breakdown and assist the Young Alumni Council as they ask teams of freshmen a wide range of questions including Muhlenberg Traditions. Stay for ice cream!
