Hello ECE Graduate Students:

We need current student volunteers to sign up for the following events to help make our New Grad Student Orientation on Tuesday, September 26th a success. I’ve included the events below and a sign up sheet for you to add your names. **Continental Breakfast and lunch will be provided to all volunteers as well as an invitation to the Orientation Social (free food and drinks!) with new students/ faculty/ staff.**

  • Student Check-in (8:30 – 9:00 am): 2-3 volunteers needed.
  • MS and PhD Lunch (11:30 – 12:30): 1-2 volunteers needed for each lunch. MS and PhD students will be in separate rooms and we would like 1-2 MS and/ or PhD students in each room to help build community and socialize with the new students. 
  • Grad Student Panel (12:45 – 1:30 pm): 4-5 volunteers needed. Talk to students about what it’s like being a UW ECE student, tips for success, answer any questions they may have about UW, ECE, Seattle, etc.
  • Scavenger Hunt (3:30-4:30 pm)6-7 volunteers needed. Help organize, give instructions to students, and score for winners
  • New and Current Student Meet Up (6:00 pm – ??): 4-5 volunteers needed. Help walk students over to Big Time Brewery and need 1 or 2 students who are able to pay for the food and submit receipts for reimbursement from ECE.

Please let me know if you have any questions about volunteering. Thank you for signing up – we really truly appreciate your help and so do our new students!
