About 50 volunteers are needed to serve as information specialists and assist guests during the Commencement ceremony. Commencement volunteers play an important service and public relations role. As a volunteer, we seek your assistance in:

  • Providing directions and programs
  • Assisting family and friends of our graduates in finding seats
  • Assisting guests with special needs, answering questions
  • Being an OSU ambassador

ALL volunteers must sign up online at http://oregonstate.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9zzBMNuZhX38eFL

Attendance at one mandatory training session will be required prior to the commencement ceremony. Training will be held on:

Tuesday, June 12, 4 to 5 p.m.


Wednesday, June 13, 4 to 5 p.m.

Location:  Beth Ray Center, Room 133

All volunteers receive confirmation and detailed information about their tasks before the Commencement ceremony.  Most volunteers will be needed on Saturday, June 16 from 8 to 11:30 a.m.  Some will be asked to stay later dependent upon tasks assigned.  

Thank you in advance for helping make Commencement a special event for our graduates and guests.
