Move-in Volunteers
Summer is flying by and August 23rd is closing in on us! Residence Life is getting more and more excited to welcome our new students to campus!
As we have in the past, Residence Life would like to invite available faculty and staff to share in that welcome with us by helping our new students move into the residence halls. This year move-in is from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm on Friday, August 23, 2019. We will have 3 shifts: 8:00 am to 10:00am, 10:00am to 12:00pm, and 12:00pm to 2:00pm. We would like to have as many people for the first 2 shifts as possible.
Please know helping our students move-in can be a high-intensity activity, one that is certainly rewarding! If you can't help with move-in, but still want to chip in, I do need people to direct traffic.
If you would like to help out that day, please let me know by emailing john.ginther@bshu.edu with the time you are available! We will meet at the Hive at 7:40 am and 9:40 am to get hall assignments and go from there. We will be repaying your kindness with a free meal in the Hive.
Please feel free to wear your best BHSU Green and Gold.
Thanks again for helping our new students get acclimated to BHSU and Spearfish. I’m looking forward to working with you all this year.
