Movers & Shakers

Move and Shake with Us!

A special program, called Movers & Shakers, brings nearly 100 student volunteers to campus in order to assist new students on move-in day (This service only functions on new student move-in days). The program provides assistance in carrying student’s belongings up to their rooms. 

Movers and Shakers Volunteers will be assigned the following role:

  • Mover and Shaker: the traditional role in which volunteers assist new students with moving into their residence hall.  M&S is typically divided up into morning and afternoon shifts with volunteers having the opportuniy to sign up for both shifts and earn 4-8 community service hours (depending on the amount of shifts they take).
  • Site Supervisor: acquire a total of 8 community service hours and are one of the main points of contact for their area during the move-in process.
