Student Volunteers for Events

Student volunteers are needed to assist on-site at some of the upcoming major events sponsored by the Office of Student Life & Engagement (OSLE) at the Center City campus. This is a great opportunity to get involved and enhance your student experience, while taking on a leadership role at the event. Student volunteers will have a specific role at the events, which may include, but is not limited to, things like check-in, managing activity stations, greeting students and assisting with line control, taking pictures, assisting with distributing food or giveaways, collecting raffle tickets, distributing information, and serving as a game attendant.
