Volunteers

Students are encouraged to volunteer as an individual or with a student organization. We need volunteers to be room hosts, runners and more for pre-events at various times. Volunteering has flexible timing and is an excellent opportunity for students to network with other students, faculty and industrial sponsors.

1. Student Volunteer Information

Volunteer positions include room hosts, runners, greeters, judge’s room attendants, technical support, registration attendants, set-up crew, and break-down crew. Students who volunteer will receive a free SRW T-shirt.

2. Recognized Student Organization Award Information

The Student Research Week 2017 Planning Committee needs YOUR organization’s help to make SRW 2017 a success. We have created a competition to determine the recognized student organization with the largest involvement. The organization that has the most volunteer hours to SRW will receive a $500 award. Last year’s winning organization (Alpha Phi Omega) alone volunteered more than 60 hours at SRW 2016! We especially encourage those organizations that require volunteer time or community service to get their members involved, as this is a great way to serve the Aggie Community.

*Individuals not associated with any organization are also encouraged to volunteer.

3. Rules for Organization Competition entry:

  • Organizations must identify a contact person, simply email srw@tamu.edu to declare this. Each volunteering member must register through the online registration.

  • Students may represent only ONE student organization throughout SRW; each organization will be asked to submit a membership roster, verified by the organization advisor, and indicate which members will be participating with coordinating times or volunteer individually.

  • Each organization that participates will be recognized at the closing ceremonies on March 31, 2017.

  • Graduate students are invited to volunteer for their organizations as well.

  • Points are earned for the number of hours served as volunteers (1 point for each volunteer hour). The highest total hours volunteered within an organization wins.
