Upcoming Events

* Attention Faculty and Staff: Move In Day Greeters Needed!

We are just a few weeks away from welcoming a new class of students to UE. Your help on this day to provide a welcoming environment for our new students is critical. As in years past, we are looking for faculty and staff volunteers to assist with helping as greeters during our move-In process. Our student volunteers who signed up in the spring will help move students into their rooms while faculty and staff volunteers will serve as greeters to students and their families and assist in coordinating and communicating the move-in process. Training will be provided and no previous experience is necessary.

Move-in Day is Saturday, August 18. There are three two-hour shifts to choose from. Please use the link provided to list yourself in a preferred timeslot. You will receive a confirmation email with more details after you register. For any questions please contact Geoff Edwards at
