This is an exciting time for new students and their families as they prepare for their arrival at SIU to begin the 2016-2017 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.

University Housing: Move-In Volunteer Information

University Housing Move-In begins on Thursday, August 18th.  We depend on the hard work and commitment of our volunteers to make this process smooth and successful for the students and families beginning (or continuing) their time as part of the Saluki Family. Many of you have a long history of assisting students at move-in and we hope you plan to do so again this year.  If you have never volunteered to help before, we hope you will consider making this your year!
