About 50 volunteers are needed to serve as information specialists and assist guests during the Commencement ceremony. Commencement volunteers play an important service and public relations role. As a volunteer, we seek your assistance in:

•             Providing directions and programs

•             Assisting family and friends of our graduates finding seats

•             Assisting guests with special needs, answering questions

•             Being an OSU ambassador

ALL volunteers must sign up online at https://conferences.bus.oregonstate.edu/Conference/commencement-volunteer/registration

Attendance at one mandatory training session will be required prior to the commencement ceremony. Training will be held on:

  • Thursday - June 9, 11am - noon at the LaSells Stewart Center, Ag Leaders Room.
  • Friday - June 10, 2pm - 3pm at the LaSells Stewart Center, Ag Leaders Room.

All volunteers receive confirmation and detailed information about their tasks before the Commencement ceremony. If you have a cell phone, please bring it on Saturday so we can reach you if needed. Most volunteers will be needed on Saturday, June 11, 2016 from 8:00am  - 11:30am.  Some will be asked to stay later dependent upon tasks assigned.  

Thank you in advance for helping make Commencement a special event for our graduates and guests.
