This is an exciting time for new students and their families as they prepare for their arrival at SIU to begin the 2017-2018 academic year. Each year students and families comment on our fantastic volunteers and the wonderful, welcoming atmosphere throughout Saluki Startup and Weeks of Welcome – all things that would not be possible without the support of our volunteers.  We are looking forward to a great beginning for our newest Salukis this year, and hope you will join us.

Volunteers are asked to wear the provided "Volunteer" shirts so students and family members can identify volunteers.
