Movers & Shakers

Making Move-In A Smooth Process

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 only assigned to one shift and earn 4 community service hours per day of service (4 hours on Thursday and an optional 4 hours on Friday).
