Question: As a student volunteer I am curious as to the importance of registering with NDSU at the memorial union. I have been helping sandbag and build dikes downtown as well as for homes along the river. Is there a specific reason students need to register at NDSU or does it really matter if you are volunteering outside of NDSU? Thank you.
A couple reasons NDSU is asking students to come to the MU Volunteer Station. First, to keep track of all the students who are taking part in the volunteer effort, and second, to keep extra vehicles off the road and get volunteers where the city needs them.
Students who get picked up at the Memorial Union are sent to different locations. Today, for example, many are being sent to Sandbag Central and to various neighborhoods where sandbagging volunteers are essential.
Hope that helps…
