Volunteer as an I-Guide

We need student volunteers to help welcome new Illini and their families to Illinois during first-year Move-In!

The I-Guide program is one of the longest-lasting student-run organizations at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (74 years old, to be exact!) and we need your help to keep the tradition going. 

What would I do as an I-Guide?

  • Welcome new Illini to campus.
  • Direct traffic (vehicle or foot).
  • Answer general campus questions. 

Are there perks?

  • Earn service hours and Illini Cash.
  • Get free meals and swag like a t-shirt, water bottle and sling bag.
  • Move in to University Housing early (fees are waived) and beat the crowds.

When are volunteers needed? 

Volunteers are needed August 16-19.
