- Wear comfortable, closed toe shoes (athletic shoes recommended).
- Volunteers may not recruit or pass out invitations/flyers of any kind.
- Volunteers must offer to help everyone.
- Remember that some students and families may not want assistance, please ask first.
- Work cooperatively with University, Orientation, and Student Affairs staff who are also assigned to assist with the move-in process.
- Refer all questions you cannot answer to the Residence Life and Orientation staff members.
Quick lifting tips:
- Before lifting, make sure your path is dry and clear of objects that could cause a fall.
- Bend your knees and keep your back straight. (Lift with your legs, not your back.)
- Bring the load close to your body and lift in a slow, even motion.
- Don't twist your body. If you must turn, move your feet.
- Keep your back straight when putting down the load.
