The Office of New Student & Spartan Family Programs is looking for 2014 SOAR volunteers to help welcome new students and their families during the month of June.

SOAR volunteers are a team of UNCG faculty and staff who assist in greeting, guiding and directing new Spartans and their families during SOAR.

There will be eight freshman sessions this June: June 5-6, June 8-9, June 10-11, June 12-13, June 16-17, June 19-20, June 23-24 and June 26-27. The majority of SOAR volunteer duties will be on the first day of SOAR between 7:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Each volunteer will get a 2014 SOAR Volunteer T-shirt to wear while working and an invitation to SOAR Preview, where there will be plenty of food and fun for all.

The SOAR Volunteer program offers flexible hours and excellent benefits to all of its volunteers. You can choose which sessions and times work best for you.

If you are willing and able to be a SOAR volunteer, contact Mary Lesa Pegg at no later than Friday, May 2. You will be sent information on how to sign up for volunteer shifts.
