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 no 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.  To fill out the 2014 Movers & Shakers Intent Form click here!

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).

We will begin a sign-up for Movers & Shakers on April 1st.  Applications will only be available until April 30th.  Only the first 150 students who accurately complete the online intent form and mail in or deliver their contract paperwork by the deadline will be allowed to participate in the program.
