Volunteer to Help Out

**PLEASE NOTE: CPW 2017 has passed. Please check back in January 2018 for more information about CPW 2018! Thank you so much for all of your time and energy, without support, CPW couldn't happen!

We need your assistance in welcoming prefrosh (and their parents!) to campus and educating them about all the wonderful activities that will be happening during CPW. You can help us out in a variety of ways – from being a friendly face prefrosh spot at registration to introducing them to their assigned living group. First impressions and helpful guides go a long way in making CPW a fun and successful weekend!

Please fill out the registration form as completely as possible by Friday, March 24th, 2017. You will hear from us by April 1 regarding your volunteer assignment for the weekend, and any training you may need (as well as any training you may need).

CPW Volunteers may be assigned to one (or more) of the following jobs listed below. Please note that we will assign volunteers to the areas of greatest need.
