Move-In Days - Call for Volunteers

Submitted by Mick Steiner,

Beginning August 19, 2020, 8 a.m.

Welcome HomeIn just over 3 weeks, we will give a warm Buckeye welcome to residential students and their families during AUTUMN MOVE-IN DAYS! This is an opportunity for us to roll out the scarlet carpet and rally the Ohio State ATI community. While this year’s plan will include safety measures to ensure physical distancing, we hope to be just as social and need your help to make these days memorable ones for our students.
Move-In for Applewood Village residents is scheduled for Wednesday, August 19th through Sunday, August 23rd between the hours of 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Beginning on August 1st, students will select a date and one hour time slot of their choice for arrival. 
VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES – Note: No employees will be moving or touching student belongings, nor entering student spaces this year. 

  •  Welcome Kits: Help pass out first-year class t-shirts and welcome kits upon arrival. Tent provided for shade.
  • Check-In: Assist housing staff with the drive-up check-in process including vehicle registration, room keys, paperwork, and general questions. Tent provided for shade.
  • Floater: Roam the village to greet students and families. Answer questions as you are able. 

Please note that some duties require you to be on your feet and you may be outdoors in the heat. Volunteers should provide their own face mask. If you have other responsibilities, or require a flexible work arrangement by working outside of your office hours, please seek permission from your supervisor before registering. 
The generous gift of time by many folks makes this week possible. Please sign up for one or more blocks of time below. After registration closes, you’ll be provided with further details and an invitation to join a virtual training session. 
Sign-up here by Friday, August 7th:
