Student Volunteer Opportunities


Volunteer for Welcome Week! 

APPLY right here! (Deadline is May 5th for 1st priority of volunteers)

Welcome Week Volunteers  create a welcoming and inclusive environment during Welcome Week by leading a small group of 20-25 new students and help facilitate ("behind the scenes") events during Welcome Week.

Welcome Week (August 21-24, 2024) focuses on providing a quality transitional experience for new students and helps them prepare for their life at UMD through planning, exploring campus, building community, and participating in campus traditions.

A key component of Welcome Week is the small group experience which is led by a large team of volunteer Welcome Week Leaders.

Benefits of being a Welcome Week volunteer:

  • Make connections with other student leaders on campus 
  • Leadership development and career skills 
  • Receive unique Welcome Week clothing, swag bag, and other fun things! 
  • Meals provided during training and Welcome Week program 
  • Support the incoming Class of 2028 and Transfer Students as they transition to UMD
