Admissions needs volunteers to greet guests

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is seeking staff volunteers to greet visiting high school seniors at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport on March 27 and April 10.

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, including the Association of Black Students, the Asian-American Association, ASHOKA (the Indian student association), the Chinese Students Association, the Asian Multicultural Council, the Association of Latin American Students, the Hawaii Club 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 in greeting prospective students at the airport are asked to call AnneMarie Chandler at 935-8226 for more information.
