Help welcome alumni home

Alumni Relations is looking for graduate students to help welcome alumni to campus on Homecoming weekends (Oct 4 -6 and 18 – 20).

Volunteering at Homecoming is an incredible opportunity to grow your Queen’s network, and get involved with the Queen’s community outside the classroom.

From networking with alumni at class reunion events, to presenting graduate work at the Student Clubs and Graduate Studies Showcase, or assisting with the Football game half-time parade, there are roles available for everyone.

All graduate students to volunteer will gain an Expanding Horizons Workshop Series credit.

Help make Homecoming 2013 a fun, safe, and successful event. Visit queensu.ca/homecoming2013 today to learn more or register.
