Student Affairs seeking Go Green Guides for fall move-in

Deadline to sign up is Thursday, Aug. 14

Greetings from Go Green!

Are you looking for a fun activity on the Thursday and Friday of fall opening? Need to get away from the desk for a few hours of outdoor adventure? Are you interested in welcoming new students and parents? Please consider becoming a Go Green Guide!

As you may be aware, the Division of Student Affairs coordinates a number of campus staff and events to welcome incoming students to Ohio University during move-in days. Go Green Guides work on the campus greens to help ensure that the arrival of our new students is as efficient and welcoming as possible.

This year we are looking to fill 100 slots for Go Green. Shifts for Go Green (Thursday, Aug. 21, and Friday, Aug. 22) are from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., from noon to 3:30 p.m., and from 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Participation in this event during the workdays is subject to the approval of your current supervisor. Questions pertaining to release time may be directed to Human Resources at 740-593-1636.

Go Green Guides will be provided with an official Go Green t-shirt, an opportunity to learn more about our events during opening weekend, and a chance to meet and greet new students! This is a fun and positive experience for both you and our new students and parents.

To sign up to assist with Go Green 2014, please visit http://goo.gl/8a5d9T and simply add your information and availability. We appreciate your prompt response no later than Thursday, Aug. 14. Once you are signed up, you will need to attend one of two short training sessions so that we can review the role of Guides. These sessions will be held in Baker University Center 231 on Monday, Aug. 18, from 10 to 11 a.m. and Tuesday, Aug. 19, from 3 to 4 p.m. Please mark your calendars now.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please do not hesitate to e-mail gogreen@ohio.edu. Thank you in advance for helping Go Green and the new incoming students of Ohio University.
