Looking for staff/faculty to volunteer for Community Welcome Event

August 1, 2011

Community Welcome event Wednesday, Aug. 24

Ever wonder who's responsible for educating our student population about local ordinances and good neighboring behavior?

Volunteers needed for just 3-4 hours!

On the night of Aug. 24, in what has become a local tradition, more than a hundred volunteers (including Fort Collins PD; CSU students, faculty, and staff; and city staff) will come together to visit thousands of homes close to campus.

Households receive a unique deck of cards that include city codes, ordinances, and resourceful phone numbers. As a volunteer, you will also help us distribute a brochure that welcomes everyone to the new academic year.

Welcoming students back to town

In addition to educating students about good neighboring behaviors associated with off-campus living, the event was created to welcome students back to Fort Collins for the new school year.

Each team emphasizes the importance of forming positive relationships with those in your neighborhood whether it is a long-term resident, new family, or fellow student.

We encourage residents, new and old, to introduce themselves and exchange contact information.

Contact to volunteer!

If you would like to volunteer for this event, contact Laura Barron at the Off-Campus Life office at (970) 491-2248 or via email at

Volunteer check-in starts at 4:30 p.m. in the West Ballroom of the Lory Student Center.

Don’t forget your water bottle and wear your walking shoes! The event usually goes until 8 p.m.
