I’m writing to make you aware of an important event coming up this fall and to ask for your involvement. As you know, a large number of our students live off-campus in various rental houses and apartment complexes in the Boone area. Appalachian is committed to helping each of these students connect with campus and community resources, especially as it relates to safety.
On the evening of September 3, 2014, as part of our annual Safety Week events, we will fan out across the community to welcome returning and transfer students living off-campus and provide them with information about important safety issues. This outreach effort, known as “House Calls”, is part of our “It’s Up to Me” Campaign promoting the philosophy that we all play a role in the safety and well-being of one another and our Appalachian family.
To accomplish our goal of reaching several thousand off-campus students, we need your help. Please consider volunteering for the evening (from approximately 5 – 8 p.m.). You have the potential to make a tremendous impact by visiting with our students for a few minutes to let them know we care.
If you are interested and available, please contact the Office of the Dean of Students at (828) 262-8284 or register as a volunteer on our event website: housecalls.appstate.edu. We will be sending out more information as the event draws nearer, but do hope that you can reserve time on your calendar now. Thank you for your consideration, and enjoy the summer!

All the best,
Dean of Students
