Here are the job descriptions for the opportunity to welcome new Huskies and represent the UW.


Fixed minglers will be stationed around campus at strategic locations. These volunteers should have a thorough understanding of the structure of the day and will need to feel comfortable answering general questions and giving directions. These volunteers may be the first point of contact for visitors as they try to find the HUB.

Check-In (iPAD)

Using our iPads, these volunteers will check visitors into the event. This will be located in the HUB, right outside of our welcome/panel. These volunteers should try to keep the line moving quickly.

Check-In (Packets)

After visitors check-in with our iPad volunteers, they will be directed toward packet stations, where they will receive materials for the day. Our packet volunteers will be in charge of distributing the materials as well as answering questions. While the iPad volunteers will try to keep the line moving, the packet volunteers may take a bit more time with each family.

Fixed Counselor

Although Admissions staff will be helping in many different capacities, they may be difficult for visitors to find and distinguish from other volunteers. To combat this, we will be setting up a fixed station where visitors can go at any time of the day to ask admissions questions. ALL VOLUNTEERS should know where this station is and feel comfortable directing visitors to it.

Tour Guide (PAID)

Tour guides will give 60-minute campus tours that start and finish in the HUB. Tours will depart every 10 minutes from 1:00PM until 3:10PM. In order to make the visitor experience a positive one, we will be strictly adhering to a 35 person per tour policy.

Resource Fair

Resource fair volunteers will be in charge of facilitating the set-up of the fair. This will include greeting departmental representatives when they arrive, greeting visitors as they arrive, and coordinating with the facilities team to make sure the space is physically set up. After the fair begins, resource fair volunteers should mingle with visitors and act as a point of contact for departmental representatives.


The primary purpose of mangers is to keep visitors engaged through small conversations. Minglers will be used when we have large gatherings of visitors but not very much structure (before the welcome, and during the resource fair). Minglers should feel comfortable approaching visitors and engaging in conversations. Essentially, we do not want visitors to awkwardly be sitting by themselves.
