Dolphin Cove is seeking volunteers for CSI’s Fifth Annual New Student Move-in Day on Sunday, Aug. 20.  This year, we will be welcoming approximately 300 freshmen to our residence halls between 8:00am and 4:00pm.  Returning students will move-in on Tuesday, Aug. 23.

Each year, members from the campus community join in to assist during move-in day, an important early experience for incoming freshmen and their families as they begin their collective journeys at CSI. Besides all Dolphin Cove staff, move-in requires an additional 35 to 40 volunteers to efficiently facilitate the various parts of the process. In addition to welcoming our new students and their families to campus, volunteers will assist students in transporting their belongings from the unloading area to the students’ rooms in both the North and South Residence Halls. This is a great opportunity for faculty, staff, and current students to meet and engage with new students and their families while welcoming them into the CSI community.

Volunteers are being asked to commit to one three-hour shift during the day:  7:30am-10:30am, 10:00am-1:00pm, or 1:00pm-4:00pm.  All volunteers will receive a t-shirt and bagged breakfast or lunch. Move-in day culminates with a BBQ and Town Hall for resident students, which volunteers are welcome to attend as well.

If you or any member of your staff is interested in volunteering, please complete the online form.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact McKala Accetura in Dolphin Cove at

Thank you in advance for helping to making Move-in Day a great experience for new students and their families.  We hope to see you on Aug. 20.
