Cowboy Carriers

We are so excited to be offering a volunteer opportunity to you and your organization during Fall 2023 Move-In. 


Cowboy Carriers is a program coordinated by Housing and Residential Life to assist parents and first-year students with the 2023 fall move-in process. As you can imagine, it can be stressful and intimidating for some families when they arrive to campus simultaneously with thousands of other families.  


Volunteering to be a Cowboy Carrier brings you together with a community of like-minded people who are all working toward a common goal. As a result, you will form friendships, have important conversations with new students, and exemplify two of the university's core values:


  • Community. Foster a strong sense of community based on shared governance among student, faculty, staff, and administration.
  •  Service. Serving others is a noble and worthy endeavor and distinguishing feature of a land-grant institution.


Fall 2023

The Cowboy Carriers initiative will take place Monday, August 14 through Thursday, August 17 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Volunteers can sign-up for morning, mid-day, or afternoon shifts. Preferably, signing up for at least one two-hour shift. 


University Dining Services is providing $10 meal vouchers to the volunteers. The voucher is only valid at North Dining and is good till September 15.The university depends heavily on your assistance when new students arrive. We want to ensure all our on-campus residents have an excellent start to the year, and we are confident this program will send a memorable, meaningful, and lasting positive message to students and parents.If you have any questions and/or interested in participating, please contact me at Thanks in advance, and we look forward to working with you. Go Pokes!
