Move-In Crew

Want to make a difference at the University of South Carolina? Be part of the "2017 USC Move-In Crew" and assist first-year students as they move into their new home on campus.


Sign me up!

We need your help on Wednesday, Aug. 16 and Tuesday, Aug. 22Shifts will occur in one hour blocks from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. 


Who can help?

We are seeking help from UofSC faculty, staff and official peer leader groups or registered student organizations.

Why should I help?

This fall, the Volunteer Move-In Crew is celebrating its 23rd anniversary! Come be a part of the celebration and the opportunity to help new students and parents get a first glance at the great Gamecock spirit and community in action.

How can I help?

You will be assigned to a residence area and will assist students and parents move in. You may also be asked to help out with greeting new families and/or giving directions. Our next class of first-year students is expected to be large again and we anticipate needing at least 300 volunteers to help manage all those TV's, lofts, and clothes, and to offer a warm Southern welcome. Whenever you can work, come and be a part of the fun!

What skills do I need?

None! You will not need any special training - just come with a smile on your face and the willingness to help our students and their family members. Pack a refillable water bottle too! All volunteers must wear the official 2017 move-in crew t-shirt. Once we make your assignment we will send you a waiver to sign, details on where to pick up your shirt and nametag, and instructions for your volunteer schedule!

When can I help?

Move-In 2017 will be held on two days: Wednesday, August 16th and Tuesday, August 22nd. The hours are flexible but the "Crew" typically works in two hour shifts starting at 8:00 AM. 


We will contact you in July with your assignment. If you have any question or concerns, please contact the Student Success Center at 803-777-1000 or
