Upcoming Events

* Volunteer for Meet and Greet Team!

It is nearly time for the new class of UE students to arrive. We want to welcome the new students to the UE campus the best way possible. If you are faculty or staff, you can help with that by being a member of the Meet and Greet Team. (The student portionof this event is already over.) This group of volunteers will be needed during three shifts on Saturday, Aug. 20. The role of a greeter is to direct new students and families around campus, especially as they move in to the Residence Halls. This process helps the Move In process run smoothly and is a huge help to our students and their families. If you would like to help please email Geoff Edwards at and reply as to which time you would like to work. The shifts are:8 a.m.-10 a.m.;10 a.m.-noon; and noon-2 p.m.
