Housing and Dining Services Move-In Volunteer Sign-Up

Jul 24, 2017 by Office of Student Activities and Services

Greetings from Housing and Dining Services,

We are seeking volunteers to assist New and Returning Wildcats as they move into their on-campus homes on our official Residence Halls Opening Day,Saturday, August 19 ,2017. Last year 160 volunteers helped continue the Move-In Event tradition of helping 1,200 students get settled in. We are so grateful for their assistance, and would love to be able to help even more students move-in with even more volunteers. 

The Move-In Event will be 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM on Saturday, August 19, 2017. Here is a breakdown of some of the logistics:

  • Groups and individuals are invited to volunteer, just sign-up at the link below.
  • Volunteers will receive a free move-in t-shirt, while supplies last.
  • Volunteers will receive an e-mail stating where they have been assigned by August 18th.
  • Volunteers are asked to show up wearing a purple K-State t-shirt (in the event we run out of volunteer t-shirts, the purple K-State t-shirt should be worn.  
    • Individuals may advertise their organization by wearing pins, stickers, etc., but we ask that no materials be handed out to students during move-in.
  • Please bring water/ a water bottle to refill at a water fountain while volunteering (it will be a warm summer day, so please stay hydrated).

There will be 3 shifts available to sign-up for; 10 AM – 12:30 PM, 12:30 PM – 3 PM, or All Day (10 AM – 3 PM). On the day of move-in, we ask that allvolunteers report to the front desk of their assigned location 15 minutes before their shift.

What a great way to welcome new members to our K-State Family! Please sign-up to volunteer at the link below, and feel free to contact us with any questions by e-mailing
