Faculty/Staff Helping Hands at Orientation – August 18

Attention all Faculty and Staff!

Orientation will be here soon and one of the best things about this event is the unity that the entire DeSales community shows to the new freshman class.  The positive feedback from the new students and their families about the welcoming team is tremendous.

Once again, the Orientation team would like to invite all DeSales University faculty and staff to help with the move in process on Sunday, August 18th from 8AM-1PM.

Those who are unable to carry objects or have limited mobility, we will have other jobs such as handing out water or directing families during move in.  There is a job for everyone who wants to be involved!  You will get an official Orientation shirt, breakfast, and lunch for helping.

Please fill out the form below if you would like to help.  Those who are interested should let us know by Wednesday, July 10, 2019 to guarantee a requested shirt size.  After July 10, 2019, we will accept forms until August 9, 2019, but shirt sizes will be limited.
