Last chance to register online to volunteer at the UST State Fair booth
The registration list is filling up quickly. Join the team of UST volunteers at the Minnesota State Fair. You’ll speak to potential students, reminisce with alumni and greet general fair goers. You’ll also have a chance to meet others who work at UST and share knowledge and pride in the university. As a bonus, you’ll receive a T-shirt and a free entry ticket. This is an exciting way to be part of the UST community.
The fair dates are Thursday, Aug. 24, through Monday, Sept. 4. Five people will be assigned to each shift. Shift times are:
- 9 a.m. to noon
- Noon to 3 p.m.
- 3 to 6 p.m.
- 6 to 9 p.m.
Employees who want to volunteer at the booth during their regular work hours must obtain supervisor approval prior to signing up for a shift. Hourly employees may sign up for one three-hour shift during their regular work hours and will be paid the three hours at the booth plus one additional hour to compensate for travel.
Kick-off sessions for training will be offered from noon to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 15, in 3M Auditorium, Owens Science Hall, on south campus, and from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 17, in Room 252, Terrence Murphy Hall, Minneapolis. Please plan to come, even if you’ve volunteered in the past.
So register now -- the shifts are filling fast!
