In less than a month, the new academic year will be underway.
A wonderful Pirate Back-To-School tradition here at ECU is to help out with the Pirate Boarding Crew. These crews assist our students and their families with moving into the residence halls.
The move-in dates this year are Thursday, August 15-18. If your department, or a group of colleagues, are interested in volunteering, please contact Lynn Caverly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will be a general training session that at least one person from your group needs to attend. This meeting is scheduled for Monday, August 12 @ 4:00 p.m. in Mendenhall Student Center, room 14. Attendance at this meeting is mandatory if you wish to assist this year as several other new issues will be discussed that relate to move-in and Pirate Boarding Crew. So even if your group has done this in the past, someone from your group will need to attend this meeting.
This year, all Pirate Boarding Crew volunteers will be provided with a t shirt so they can be more easily recognized by our students and their families as a person who can assist with move-in.
This is an excellent way to make our newest members of The Pirate Nation feel welcomed!! I hope you will join us.
