Bear Crew

Calling All Bears: We want you to join the Bear Crew!

Become a member of the Bear Crew and welcome incoming students and their families to campus by helping them move into their residence hall rooms. We are looking for volunteers from our current student body to help with Missouri State move-in on August 15-17, 2019.

The Benefits of participating in Bear Crew

  • Receive an official Bear Crew t-shirt for working at least two (2) shifts.
  • Receive a dining center meal voucher each day you volunteer.
  • Promote your organization(s) by distributing information on standard-size business cards while you help students move in.
  • Organizations that have at least 12 members sign up by Wednesday, July 10, 2019 can have the organization’s name added to the back of their shirts.
  • Volunteer hours will be tracked and submitted to OSE and Fraternity and Sorority Life for verification.
  • Students who live in the residence halls will be able to move in a day early for Bear Crew orientation.

How Students Sign Up

All Bear Crew student volunteers will need to:

  • Sign up for at least two (2) shifts
  • Attend Bear Crew Orientation on August 13 or August 14

How Staff and Faculty Sign Up

The process for Staff and Faculty to sign up to help as Bear Crew Volunteers is different than the student process. We encourage you to sign up for a two-hour shift. During that time, you can help greet and hold open doors, or help move boxes if you wish. Family members love seeing our staff and faculty engaged with our move in process.

How Leaders of the Bear Crew Sign up

If you are interested in helping us lead volunteers by working half-day shifts, you can be a Bear Crew Leader. There is additional training which is provided with the orientation sessions for our Leaders. We have the additional incentive of a gift card for assisting as a Leader.  We ask that only students who have assisted with Bear Crew in the past and who are familiar with our residence halls take us up on this opportunity.
