Greeters Program

Welcome New Hoos

The Greeters program welcomes the incoming first-year class each year as 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 deadline to sign up is Friday, August 16 at 11:59 p.m.
