In addition, some RLC's utilize volunteers in other activities such as decorating the lobbies and halls prior to residents arriving. It is important to note the following:

All student who come back for early arrival to volunteer for new student move-in at the assigned times and location on Saturday, September 20, 2014 from 7:00AM until 2:00PM (may be released earlier depending on need). Volunteers arrive Thursday for the daVinci and Loyola RLCs, and Friday for the remaining RLCs. All early arrival students agree to participate fully in their RLC preparations on the designated days per specific RLC instructions.


Students who are accepted to participate as Welcome Weekend Volunteers, who move in early to the residence hall, and not follow through on their Welcome Weekend commitment by working their scheduled shifts and completing all assigned responsibilities, will be charged a $250 per night early arrival fine, in addition to facing possible judicial action for failing to comply with specific early arrival guidelines.
