Volunteers to welcome students back to campus

Volunteers, including some campus leaders, will help new students move into residence halls at CU-Boulder.
New students moving into residence halls at the University of Colorado at Boulder will get a hand from volunteers, including a few campus leaders.

CU-Boulder Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Julie Wong is scheduled to lend a helping hand on Thursday, when the campus expects the majority of first-year students to move into residence halls for the 2009-10 academic year. Students began moving in on Tuesday.

Members of the CU Welcoming Assembly 2009-10, a coalition of some 100 volunteers from the Residence Hall Association and several student groups, will station themselves near all residence halls to help students and their parents move belongings into the halls as quickly as possible.

Other groups sponsoring move-in volunteers include the football program, the women's basketball team, Army ROTC, Hillel, the Black Student Alliance, the Panhellenic Association, St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Center and others.

"We're excited to welcome the new incoming class and assist them as they adjust from home to college," said John Fox, assistant director of residence life. "This is a time of significant change for incoming students and their families and we strive to make this experience memorable and successful."

As part of communitywide efforts to help students adjust to life in Boulder, a coalition of student, city and university leaders will walk through neighborhoods that traditionally house the largest concentration of students living off campus, including University Hill and Goss Grove.

Boulder City Manager Jane Brautigam, CU-Boulder Chancellor Phil DiStefano, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Julie Wong and Athletic Director Mike Bohn will conduct the annual "walkabouts" from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. today and on Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Walkabout participants will welcome students back to CU-Boulder and provide them with information about responsible off-campus living. Students will learn about local ordinances that apply to after-hours socializing, safe conduct recommendations, and sensible football fan conduct.
