AskMe volunteers are expected to wear their T-Shirt and/or Hoodie 2-3 times per week throughout each Semester. It is important to wear the AskMe apparel so that you are easily identified. This will ensure that other students know that a volunteer is 'on duty'.

In addition to being available for other students to ask you questions, you will also be asked to survey students for a couple of hours a semester. This is to help us improve our services to students.
