House Calls 2020 will take place Wednesday, August 26, 2020
The House Calls program is designed to reach out to residence hall students and give them an opportunity to interact with faculty, staff, and administrators on a more personal level. By visiting individual rooms in the residence halls, volunteers can welcome students, help determine if they need any assistance, and answer any questions they might have.
Faculty and Staff Information
If you would like to volunteer for House Calls, please click on the Sign-Up link above and fill out the registration form. During the event, faculty and staff volunteers go door-to-door within a residence hall joined by a Resident Assistant to check in with students on a floor. It is an additional opportunity to welcome students to campus, hand out goodies, answer questions, and help connect them to resources. House Calls volunteers are provided a catered meal to start the event and MSU apparel to wear during the event.
