Volunteers are a vital part to the success of OUR. Without them, OUR familia would not be complete.

We will need volunteers to drive OUR groups to various events off campus. Vehicles not provided. OUR will provide at least one home-cooked meal throughout the Week. We will also need volunteers to loan us their kitchen savviness.

Please fill out the Volunteer Form below and we will contact you a few weeks before OUR begins for you to provide your availability.

We appreciate any help we can get. Thank you for all your support and contributions to make this year the best OUR yet! We also ask for volunteers not to wear any organization affiliated apparel. These includes shirts, jeans, sweaters, jackets, hats, and anything else which may promote your organization.

About Us

Orientation for United Raza (OUR) is an alternative to Week of Welcome (WOW). OUR places an emphasis on creating a community for incoming first-year and transfer students by integrating students from different majors and resident halls into each OUR group. With a high leader to OURie ratio, OUR allocates more opportunities to develop a mentor/mentee relationship with the OUR leaders. More Info


"OUR was a great experience! It was fun, everybody was so nice, and the leaders made sure everyone was welcome and having a good time. Considering how much cheaper it is to WOW, OUR had just as much, if not more activities! I had an awesome time participating in OUR." -Carol Wu View Testimonials


OUR familia is not possible without amazing volunteers as yourself! If you will be in SLO anytime during the Week and would like to help out, either by driving or cooking meals, please apply to be a volunteer today. Apply to Volunteer
