Volunteers needed for student move-in from Aug. 3-8

Cars line the streets on campus during a past Move-In Day at Augusta University. This year's event will span the week of Aug. 3-8 to promote safety and social distancing.

Augusta University has spent many weeks preparing to welcome our students back safely, and there is only one critical need left to cover: housing move-in. And we need your help.

“As always, we cannot facilitate a successful move-in without the help of our faculty, staff, and student leaders. We plan to roll out the blue carpet and ensure our students know we have missed them,” said Patrice Jackson, assistant vice president, Student Affairs.

However, this year’s move-in process will be different:

  • Every aspect of move-in will be physically distanced (by at least 6 feet).
  • Everyone is required to wear their face coverings at all times while working with move-in.
  • Our move-in will span an entire week (8 a.m.-6 p.m. Aug. 3-8) in order to ensure we provide safe physical distance in our halls.

We have volunteer roles for both inside our buildings as well as outside for traffic flow and support.

See the sign-up sheet here.

Be sure to review each role (scroll down) before choosing your post. Feel free to sign up for more than one time slot if your schedule allows. We need several hands and hearts to make this work.

We will hold volunteer training through Microsoft Teams at 1 p.m. Friday, July 31, to answer questions and equip you to serve. The meeting invitation will be shared when you sign up.

Please send questions to Ariel Miller or call 706-721-3356.
