​Get in touch with your crew before August 17th!

This will help keep you organized between training and the first day. You will get your crew lists and t-shirts and prep your bags for the first day on Sunday after training. We will try to get you the most accurate list, but there will be changes along the way as students add and drop. I will come around after you are in the classrooms on orientation day to pick up your revised sheets, so the first thing you should do is take roll, letting me know who was not there and who is additional. Remember to call your freshmen between Sunday, August 14th and Tuesday, August 16th. Do Not wait until the last minute. Remember, they will be talking to one another. Be the first Link Leader to get in touch, not the last. Cold calls are tough. Practice and make a plan with your partner. Boys call boys only. Please script out your call.

My name_______________________________
My Link Leader Partner_________________________
Her/His Phone #_______________________________

Important Info:
1. You and your partner must decide who is going to call which freshmen
2, Make sure you both know the schedule for Wednesday, August 17th
3. Contact your Crew Members no later than Tuesday, August 16th
4. Use this checklist when you call your freshmen(leave a message only as a last resort)

  • Introduce yourself
  • Tell them they are on your crew
  • Remind them of the day and time of the orientation
  • Tell them to wear comfortable clothes as it will be a very active day and they will be sitting on the floor-no skirts for girls
  • Let the know what time the day will be over
  • Ask them if they have any questions
  • Tell them you are really looking forward to meeting them
  • Determine if their English is limited and make a note on your list (if you can determine first language, that will be helpful)
  • Goodbye

Report to the gym at 7am on Wednesday, August 17th! Don't be late!

Please check the calendar below and get in touch with your crew. If you need some suggestions about how to reach out, come by and see me in B30.
