Move In Herd - Student/Student Orgs

Move In Herd - Student/Student Orgs

This form will open on Wednesday, August 1 at 9 a.m.

We want to thank you for volunteering your time for Move-In Day on Thursday, August 23, as we kick off Welcome Week here at WTAMU! We are excited to include members of our student body, faculty/staff, alumni, and our friends in the Canyon community in welcoming our new residents into the Buff community.

To make move-in a very positive experience for students and their families, we need a “Move-In Herd” of at least 250 volunteers. We have a variety of needs during this event, from coordinating volunteers to carrying boxes to student rooms. Volunteers will serve to greet, coordinate volunteers, unload vehicles, direct traffic to parking locations, and carry belongings to student rooms. Volunteer shifts are listed below in two-hour increments; you can, however, list specific hours if you are unable to commit to the times listed.

All volunteers will receive a free MOVE-IN HERD t-shirt to wear during their respective shifts (while supplies last). Once we have our volunteers, we will then assign you to your building location. All volunteers will be expected to attend one of our mandatory Move-In Herd Trainings prior to Move-In Day to receive your residence hall and position assignments, as well as to understand our STOP-DROP-GO move-in system. Dates, times, and location will be sent via email as we approach Move-In Day; we will most likely have mid-day and evening training options.

Thank you for volunteering to make this a positive experience for our students! If you have questions or would like additional information, please call the Office of Residential Living at 806-651-3000 or email us at
