Cougar Crash Course Volunteer: This is a great alternative for you if you can’t commit to the schedule of the Y-Group Leaders. We need a large group of volunteers to help us throughout the campus tour.

These are usually 2-hour slots of time, so sign up for as many as you like!

Examples of what you could participate in are: being a photographer for the Y-Groups, directing students to meetings/activities, and helping campus reps set up presentations.

Note: Saturday is a special day. This is our Class Schedule Walkthrough, where upperclassmen take individual students through their class schedule so they don’t get lost on the first day of school. Feel free to wear Club/Major T-Shirts on this day to promote your organization!

  • Interested? Click HERE to sign up!
    • Lunch and a T-Shirt will be provided.
    • Again, Fall NSO is Thursday, August 30 thru Saturday, September 1st.
