FAST Lab Calls for Volunteers to Help Freshmen Make Transition to College Life

Posted on June 27, 2018

The Freshman Advisement Summer Transition Lab (FAST) is recruiting volunteers for this year’s program, which will take place from Tuesday, July 10, through Friday, July 13.

Volunteers assist new students and their families with navigating several areas including financial aid, FERPA, student accounts/authorized payer, student work-study positions, textbook lists and other critical areas.

During the past three years, FAST Lab volunteers have helped more than 500 Duquesne freshmen and transfer student families feel welcome and prepared as they begin their academic careers at the University.

Members of the campus community interested in volunteering for FAST can sign up for one of two training sessions via MyLEAD. Trainings for new volunteers will be offered on July 9 from 9 to 10:30 a.m., or from 2 to 3:30 p.m.
