Current Volunteer Opportunities

Alumni Weekend 2018

Alumni Weekend is our largest celebration of the year! Alumni from far and wide head back to campus to reunite, reminisce and make new friends. With events and activities including performances, tours, speakers and more, there's something for everyone.

Alumni Weekend is made possible in part by the amazing work of our volunteers. Last year, nearly 150 volunteers generously donated 566 hours of their time to making the event a success. Each year, Alumni Weekend gets bigger and better -  and this year is no exception, so we'll need lots of help to pull it off!  Read more below about the Alumni Weekend volunteer opportunities, and sign-up to make this the best on yet!
