Moving a new flock of Ducks into 10 residence halls in the span of one day requires a cadre of volunteers in matching shirts ready to lend a hand or an ear to their new comrades.
Unpack the Quack takes place Friday, Sept. 27, during move-in week. Faculty members, students and staff can sign up online for one or more 2½-hour shifts as a mover or a greeter. University Housing provides a free meal and bright yellow T-shirt as thanks to registered volunteers who welcome fresh arrivals and help them move into their new home away from home.
UO departments working with academic residential communities have the option to volunteer with their communities. Other staff volunteers can help with the early move-in too.
Registration and training for Unpack the Quack is available online.
Anyone having trouble signing up or questions should call the housing front desk at 541-346-4277 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
