Faculty and Staff Helping Hands at Orientation, 8/20

Attention all Faculty and Staff!

Orientation is fast approaching 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 this year the Orientation team would like to invite all DeSales University faculty and staff to help with the move-in process on Sunday, August 20 from 8:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

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. If you have any questions, contact us at DSUOrientation@desales.edu.

Those who are interested should let us know the following by Friday, August 18, 2017 and fill out the following form:

August 2017 Connections – The Opioid Crisis and You

August 2017

Opioid addiction has reached epidemic proportions. More than 500,000 people may die of overdoses in the next decade. This month’s Connections newsletter explores treatment options with information on where to get help.

Then, flip over the newsletter to learn how ConnectCare3 helped Laura Tallerico find treatment options for her daughter when her family had nowhere else to turn.

As always, if you need assistance, remember our team is just a phone call away.
