Volunteers can still help with Weeks of Welcome

As members of the campus community settle into the fall semester, there are still plenty of opportunities for faculty and staff to volunteer during Weeks of Welcome, which run through Sept. 12. 

The information to volunteer with Weeks of Welcome events is available here

The list of events include:

The event is a collaboration between Career Services, Financial Aid, New Student Programs and the Student Center.
  • Saluki Cents. The financial aid office is offering “Thrifty Thursday” financial literacy programs each Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. outside the Student Center during Weeks of Welcome, which runs through Sept. 12.
