Upcoming Events

* Meet and Greet Team Volunteers Needed

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. A big thanks to all the students who volunteered for the Move in Crew - we now have all the help we need for that portion of Move In Day activities.  But if you are faculty or staff, you can still help by being a member of the Meet and Greet Team. 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.
