We want you on our team!

Guns Up Greeter Program is a group of roughly 30 students selected to participate in a leadership and community service program shortly before the residence halls open in the fall semester. These student volunteers are valuable in helping to ensure a smooth move-in process for new students.

Guns Up Greeters volunteer during move-in weekend and at least once during Night at the Sub & Food Fest. Guns Up Greeters will be heavily involved from Thursday, August 17th until Sunday, August 20th. After that time, involvement in other activities and organizations is determined by each individual participant. Nearly all program expectations will end before the beginning of classes.

Guns Up Greeter Program consists of students selected to assist families with primarily administrative tasks within Hospitality Services (HS) and the dining locations across campus. Examples include staffing HS location tables, greeting families, providing directions, etc. Students in this role should be comfortable speaking with people, be attentive to detail, and at ease working with large groups of people.

Program Perks
During the 4-day program, participants will:

  • Connect with incoming students
  • Participate in college success and leadership training sessions
  • Interact with and work alongside university staff
  • Help other students and families during the move-in process
  • Receive free meals during the program
  • Get a free t-shirt
  • Move into the residence hall on Wednesday, August 16th - several days before everyone else!

Program Eligibility
We are seeking energetic students that are excited to be living on campus. Ideal applicants should feel comfortable working with others, being around groups of people, and comfortable assisting others. The Guns Up Greeter Program is open to any student living on campus at Texas Tech during the fall 2017 semester. A limited number of spaces are available for the Guns Up Greeter Program.

Program Costs
The Guns Up Greeter program is free to all participants. There are no program or application fees.

All participants will sign a leadership agreement highlighting expectations of the positions including attendance at all training events and volunteer shifts. Because of the large cost absorbed by Hospitality Services to sponsor this program, students that commit to the program, but then fail to arrive or to fulfill their expectations will be billed for all expenses the organization absorbed on behalf of the participant.
