Register online today to volunteer at the UST State Fair booth

From University Relations

Online registration begins today to join the team of UST volunteers at the Minnesota State Fair. You’ll speak to potential students, reminisce with alumni and greet general fairgoers. 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. Sign up early to get the date and time that works best for you. Shift times are:

  • 9 a.m. to noon
  • Noon to 3 p.m.
  • 3 to 6 p.m.
  • 6 to 9 p.m.

Employees wishing 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

  • Noon-1 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 15, in 3M Auditorium, Owens Science Hall, St. Paul south campus
  • Noon-1 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 17, in Room 252, Terrence Murphy Hall, Minneapolis campus

Please plan to come, even if you’ve volunteered in the past.
