Why Volunteer?

Move-in is a fun event that brings faculty, staff, registered student organizations and the community together. Housing depends on the hard work and smiling faces of volunteers during move-in.

"Each year, students and their families rave about our fantastic volunteers and the welcoming atmosphere of the University of Arkansas," said Felisha Perrodin, organizer of volunteers.

"Volunteers are essential to the move-in process, and we know that our students would not have the best experience without the large campus and community's participation.

"While much of the work is in hot conditions, we believe this first contact with students sets an example for the rest of students' time at the University of Arkansas," she said. 

For more information, contact Perrodin at fperrod@uark.edu or by calling 575-3087.
