Over 2,000 of you showed up last year to welcome students onto the CU Boulder campus, and we need your help again. We are recruiting volunteers to assist with a variety of events and tasks during Fall Welcome. We are hoping to engage students, staff, faculty, alumni and community members in the tradition of welcoming new students and families to CU-Boulder.  We are going to need over 3,000 people to help out this year with Fall Welcome. 

Please click the black button below to review the Fall Welcome Sign Up for 2019. There are over 400 spots to choose from. To see a list of volunteer roles with their descriptions please review the Volunteer Positions tab to the right or in the drop down on the mobile version of this site.
