Volunteer Opportunities for Scranton Parents

Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities:

We need your help to welcome the Class of 2017 and their parents to the Scranton family. There are many opportunities to get involved, from Summer Orientation to Family Weekend.  We invite you to let us know your interests.

Please review the opportunities to get involved (below) and email us (parents@scranton.edu) if you would like to be a part of any of the events. No worries, your email expression of interest will not commit you in any way.  We will simply talk with you in greater detail about the opportunity and let you decide if you'd like to participate.

Summer Orientation Greeter
July 8-9, 11-12, 15-16, 18-19, 2013
Help us kick off the Class of 2017's Scranton experience at Summer Orientation. Share your perspective as a Scranton parent and answer the questions of our incoming students and their families.

Summer Send-Off Host
July-August 2013
Host a party for new students and their parents at your home. Hosting a send-off is a great way to welcome students from your hometown to the Scranton family. Send-offs will be held in late July and August, prior to the start of the semester. Our staff will assist you with creating and sending invitations to your party.

Fall Welcome Greeter
Saturday, August 24, 2013

We won't ask you to do any of the heavy lifting, but we need your help to greet families and welcome students to their new home away from home.
Please note: Move-In for upperclass students will be on Sunday, August 25, 2013.

Family Weekend Greeter
September 27-29, 2013
Family Weekend is all about spending time with your students. In between hanging out with them and their friends, and shopping downtown, spend some time greeting fellow Scranton parents at registration and various on-campus events.

Are We Missing Anything?? 

Parents, please let us know if there are other campus events that may spark your interest, and we would be glad to look into possible parent volunteer participation.
