Welcome Series Volunteers

International Student Welcome Series Volunteers.

Do you like making an impact? Do you like being part of a team? Are you looking to develop your leadership skills? 

Apply to volunteer during International Orientation

ISS recruits students to serve as volunteers during our International Orientation. Our dedicated volunteers are crucial to the success of our week-long welcome series for new international students. Volunteers are expected to be engaging, enthusiastic, committed, and respectful. Throughout the week, volunteers will gain great leadership experience while also performing tasks that vary from handling important documents and distributing materials to directing student traffic and fielding general questions about UB.  You'll also have a ton of fun working with ISS staff and fellow students to make sure our newly-arrived students feel welcomed!

Orientation Volunteers must be available volunteer starting the Friday before the week before the start of classes through the Saturday before the start of classes. If you are interested in being a volunteer, please complete the application using the button below. You must complete the application even if you served as a volunteer in the past.  Please note that you must be an enrolled student to be a volunteer.

If you know any other students (international or domestic students of any citizenship, academic level, major, etc.) who might be interested in serving as a volunteer, please encourage them to complete the application in the link above.

Group interviews for new volunteers will be conducted in April.
