Volunteer with House Calls!
The purpose of the House Calls Program is to welcome first-year residence hall students to the UNCG campus community and provide them with an opportunity to interact with faculty members and administrators on a personal level. Research indicates that developing a relationship with a faculty or a staff member can have a significant impact on students and increase retention.
House Calls will take place on Monday, August 27, 2012, from 6pm-8pm. If you volunteer for this program, you will be working with a UNCG colleague(s) visiting first-year students in one of the residence halls on campus. As a volunteer you will have an opportunity to do the following:
- Interact with 20-30 students in a residence hall setting. You will visit students in their residence hall room and have a conversation with them about their first week of school. You will answer a lot of general questions about the University.
- Provide students with "items of success" to assist with their transition to the university.
- Have dinner with other volunteers. A salad and baked potato bar will be served from 6:00PM – 6:30PM in the Elliott University Center (EUC), Cone Ballroom. Volunteer Check-in will begin at 5:45PM.
- Participate in a brief orientation. During dinner, you will receive the necessary information and materials to prepare you for the House Calls experience.
Deadline for volunteer sign-up is Monday, August 13, 2012. For more information, contact HRL at 336-334-5636.
