About Us

Volunteer

We offer two volunteer opportunities focused around helping new students:

Orientation Volunteer

Orientation volunteers help welcome students to campus and assist with a multitude of events in the week before classes begin. Each volunteer is also assigned to a first-year hall.

You will have opportunities to work with the first-year students one-on-one and show them what the University of Rochester is all about! Not only is this a great leadership opportunity, but you’ll also be able to make new friends and have fun doing it! 

Questions? Email eleanoroi@rochester.edu.

Application

Applications are no longer open for 2018 orientation. Please check back next year! Recruitment typically begins in February.

Training

Volunteers are asked to return to campus on August 17 for training on August 18–19. Food and housing will be provided.

Group Volunteers

Group volunteer applications will be available soon! Your group must be recognized by CCC in order to apply.

Applications can be submitted at 311/315 Genesee Hall or via email to orientation@rochester.edu
