Each year SIU depends upon returning students, faculty and staff, and the Carbondale community to help welcome new students to campus. Volunteers play a critical role in events and help establish a sense of the SIU community from a new student’s first day on campus. Volunteer roles vary greatly, so anyone can be involved – simply choose a shift that works for you.
