Freshman Welcome Wagon - Fraternity & Sorority Volunteers

More than 800 freshmen and their parents will descend upon APSU on August 24, 2017, with two goals – to get their respective students situated in their rooms, while at the same time maintaining the sanity of all involved.  It can be an intensely stressful situation for the students and their families as they take on the physical challenge of move-in while also experiencing the myriad of emotions that come when a son or daughter leaves the nest and goes off to college.

A smiling face and a helping hand can make a huge difference. We invite you and your group to join the “Freshman Welcome Wagon” and assist our new students and their families during move-in.

If you are interested in assisting, please complete the information below. Fraternity & Sorority Affairs will respond back with your volunteer time.

Freshmen move in is from 8 am – 3 pm on Thursday, August 24th. Please sign up and welcome our students to campus!
