Become a 2022 Orientation Core Team member or volunteer

Tuesday, May 3, 2022

We are beginning the process of building our 2022 Orientation teams.

Core Team

You must have at least volunteered one year in order to serve on the Core Team.  We have implemented a training process which Core Team will go through in August just prior to Orientation.  You will be responsible for leading a small group of freshman through the orientation process, and educate them about Carroll College, and the departments they will need to visit to get questions answered.   If you are interested in serving on the Core Team, please email Patrick Harris at with answers to the following questions.  The answers to these questions will serve as your application. 

  1. Name:
  2. What year of College will you be in at the start of Fall 2022?
  3. How many times have you served as an Orientation volunteer? 
  4. Have you served on the Core Team before?
  5. If you are not chosen for Core, would you still like to volunteer?
  6. What is your motivation for wanting to serve as a Core Leader?


If you would like to volunteer for the 2022 Orientation team, please email Patrick Harris at with the simple words, "I would like to volunteer".  No experience is needed to volunteer. Volunteers and Core will be allowed to move in early. There will be a training session a day or so before the Freshman arrive. Volunteer experience is required if you are planning to serve on the Core Team in the future.

Most importantly - Thank you to all those who have served as a Volunteer or a Core Team member in the past.   You may never know the difference you have made to a freshman showing up a little scared or unsure. Your smile, positive attitude, help, welcome, or care may have made all the difference in the world to them. You yourself may have a memory of an Orientation Volunteer or Core Team member who welcomed you and made you feel at home. Your passion to welcome our new family members to Carroll is what makes this place and college so special. Thank you!
