2014 Internship and Volunteer Fair
The 2014 Internship and Volunteer Fair for UNCW students will take place on Wednesday, April 16, 2014, 10am - 12pm, along Chancellor's Walk.
Information for Agencies
Registration: We would like to invite your organization to participate in the 2014 UNCW Internship and Volunteer Fair. The Fair will take place outside along Chancellor's Walk, the path that leads from Randall Library to McNeil Hall (the nursing building). This is a very high traffic area - so you will have the opportunity to share your agency's information with hundreds of students, faculty, and staff. Due to budget cuts, we will not be able to provide you with refreshments this year, as we had been able to do in the past. This event is a great way for students at UNCW to learn about internship and volunteer opportunities in the Wilmington area. It is also a wonderful way for agencies to get more interns and volunteers. We hope that you will join us!
Directions and Parking: Visitor parking is available for all participants in the Lot M (4941 Riegel Road) visitor lot. More information is available on the Parking website. Once you park, walk toward the ponds on campus. Chancellor's Walk is the long sidewalk that runs from main campus to the dorms area. You will see dozens of tables set up along Chancellor's Walk. If you have large items that you need to drop off before parking, you can continue along Price Drive (off of Riegel Road) until you reach the back of the Computer Information Systems Building. That is the closest drop-off point between visitor parking and Chancellor's Walk.
Schedule: The Fair starts at 10am, so please plan to arrive between 9:30am and 9:45am. We will have volunteers on hand to help you set up your display/table and to help you carry items from your car as needed. We will also have volunteers available at 12pm to help you pack up.
Set-up: Each agency will have a table and two chairs. We cannot provide tents or shade, unfortunately, so you are encouraged to bring sunscreen or your own tent/umbrella. We will have tape on hand, but encourage you to bring paper weights so that your papers and materials do not fly away.
Information for Students
You are encouraged to stop by and talk to representatives from agencies during the event. See what their agency does and how you might help. Also check on internship and volunteer opportunities.
