An On Iowa! volunteer shirt will be given to all new volunteers; this design is the same as previous years, if you already have one.

Shirts will be available for pick-up starting August 10 from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday-Friday, from our On Iowa! Headquarters, room 339 of the Iowa Memorial Union.

Please contact Orientation Services at if you can't make it, or have problems with picking up your volunteer shirt. 

  • We can accommodate only individuals who have been confirmed to volunteer.  We will not be able to accommodate volunteer family members, minors, or 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.
  • 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.
  • Once your volunteer shift is over, we ask that you exit the volunteer event.
  • Additional volunteer training will be provided on-site prior to the volunteer events.
