Welcome to Michigan 2018

Welcome 2018 needs your help! With numerous large events serving thousands of students, Welcome to Michigan relies upon Student Life staff to make students’ first days on campus fun, safe, and memorable.

The Welcome programs below are in need of your support. Please review program dates and times and sign up for shifts you are available to work. You are able (and encouraged) to sign up for multiple shifts as your schedule allows.

To navigate this sign up process, you can click into a particular day or event by using the navigation at the top of the page or click "Show All" to browse available shifts. Each day includes a brief description of the event and possible staffing roles. Please note that, upon registering, you will have the ability to note any physical restrictions or other accommodations we should keep in mind when assigning specific roles. Prior to the beginning of Welcome, the staff member or members coordinating each event will contact you with additional details regarding your shift.

Thank you in advance for your commitment to this special time of year! If you need any help navigating the sign-up process, or have questions about volunteering for Welcome programs, please contact Ashley Rutledge in the Center for Campus Involvement at amrutled@umich.edu.

Thank you, and Go Blue!

Info Stations" will be situated at four locations throughout campus to help new and current students navigate their first two days of classes (Tuesday, September 4th and Wednesday, September 5th). Signing up for multiple shifts is encouraged, as our goal would be to have 2 volunteers serving each hour at each location! All sites will be provided with ample resources, contact information, and bottled water for volunteer use.
