Welcome New Hoos
Greeters is a part of Virginia Ambassadors, a student-run organization that partners with the Office of Undergraduate Admission and Housing & Residence Life to provide prospective students with information about student life at UVA, as well as to welcome the incoming first-year class once they arrive on Grounds.
Greeters volunteers are responsible for helping students move into their on-Grounds housing during move-in days each August. This involves transporting boxes, fans, mini-fridges, luggage, and whatever else students may bring with them, generally being available, welcoming, friendly, and ready to assist families as they move their students into their new homes.
Greeters is a unique program in that volunteers are often the first friendly faces students see when they step on Grounds in August as first-years. In addition to helping students move in, volunteers have the opportunity to engage with new students, share their experiences, and help incoming ‘Hoos envision their lives at UVA. The role of a Greeter is incredibly important and immensely rewarding.
The Fall 2023 Greeters sign-up deadline was Thursday, June 29.
