The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is seeking staff volunteers to greet visiting high-school seniors at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport on March 25 and April 15.
The two days mark the beginning of the University’s annual scholarship competition weekend and the multicultural “Celebrations” weekend for students admitted to next fall’s freshman class. Last year, approximately 60 volunteers participated in the greeting.
The April weekend is sponsored by several student groups — the Association of Black Students, the Asian-American Association, Ashoka (the Indian student association), the Asian Multicultural Council, the Association of Latin American Students, the Hawaii Club, the Native American Student Association and the Muslim Student Association — along with the admissions office.
Volunteers are asked to work a two- to three-hour morning, afternoon or evening shift on either or both days. A luncheon and training session for volunteers will be held in advance.
Those interested are asked to call AnneMarie Chandler at 935-8226 for more information.
