UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

Come SOAR at UNCG

SOAR leaders invite faculty and staff to be a part of welcoming students to campus:

The Office of New Student & Spartan Family Programs is currently looking for 2012 SOAR volunteers to help us welcome new students and their families during the month of June. SOAR 2012 is right around the corner and we want you to join our team. Show new students and families your Spartan Spirit!

Who are SOAR Volunteers?
SOAR Volunteers are UNCG faculty and staff who greet, guide and assist new Spartans and their families.

When is SOAR?
There will be eight freshman sessions this June: June 7-8, June 10-11, June 12-13, June 14-15, June 18-19, June 21-22, June 25-26 and June 28-29. The majority of the SOAR volunteer duties will be on the first day of SOAR between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.

How much will the SOAR volunteers be paid for their services?
Sometimes the best reward for a good deed is not money, but the memories. And nothing helps you hold on to these fond memories better than a 2012 SOAR volunteer T-shirt to wear while you are working and an invitation to the SOAR Kick-Off Party where there will be plenty of food and fun for all.

I’m very busy and am taking vacation time in June. Can I still help?
Of course. It would be great to have volunteers who can help each session, but we know that can be difficult. The SOAR Volunteer program offers flexible hours and excellent benefits to all of its volunteers. You can choose which sessions and times work best for you.

If you can’t help, be sure to forward this along to others who might be interested.

What’s next?
Prior to SOAR, we’ll meet as a group to say thanks, give assignments and distribute T-shirts.

Join the fun, meet new students and families, receive a commemorative T-shirt and show new students and their families your Spartan Spirit.

How do I sign up?
If you are willing and able to be a SOAR volunteer, please RSVP to Allison Schofield at apschofi@uncg.edu no later than Monday, April 30, 2012. Once you RSVP, she will share a Google Doc with you where you can select which session, which day and which post you would like request. Feel free to email her with any questions you might have.
