Thank you for your interest in volunteering during the 2015 On Iowa! program. Volunteers are an essential element in producing a successful program to welcome new students into our University community and family.

Volunteer Contact Information

Ready to explore volunteer opportunities and register?
Volunteer registration is now closed, please contact oniowavolunteer@uiowa.edu if you are still interested.
Keep an eye on this page for volunteer updates.

After you sign up you will receive a confirmation email about your specific volunteer assignment. In August, volunteers will receive an additional e-mail to confirm their volunteer roles as well as some specific instructions (i.e., where to report, what to bring). In addition, if you don’t have a gold volunteer t-shirt from last year, you will learn about where to pick one up.

  • We can accommodate only individuals who have been confirmed to volunteer.  We will not be able to accommodate volunteer family members, minors and pets.
  • Please dress comfortably (tennis shoes, shorts, etc.) and wear your On Iowa! volunteer t-shirt.
  • Wearing a name tag or office button is encouraged; name tags will also be provided at the volunteer locations.
  • Please leave valuables at home (there is not a place to put purses, backpacks, etc.).
  • Volunteers are encouraged to bring a refillable water bottle to stay hydrated throughout their shift.
  • We encourage volunteers to wear sunscreen if you are working a shift during peak sun hours.
  • Parking suggestions/maps will be provided at a later date.
  • Once your volunteer shift is over, we ask that you exit the volunteer event.
  • Additional volunteer training will be provided on-site at the volunteer events.

 Check back soon for more specific details!  This site will have the most current information for volunteers.
