Howard University ASK ME Campaign
July 15, 2011
The Howard University Ask ME Campaign, sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs, kicks off during the first few weeks of the fall and spring semesters to welcome to campus first-year, transfer, and returning students. ASK ME Booths, staffed by volunteers, are located at predetermined positions campus wide. Volunteers will provide students with information about the university, from general directions to more specific how-to information. Howard University’s ASK ME Campaign is designed not only to provide a welcoming atmosphere to new Bison and their parents during orientation and the first week of classes, but to also offer one-on-one assistance that will lessen the anxiety of the first few weeks of classes.

How can I find an ASK ME Volunteer?
ASK ME Volunteers, a team of faculty, staff, students, and alumni, will be stationed at predetermined locations campus wide from 8:00 am - 6:00 pm throughout orientation—from August 13th to August 26th. Circulating patrols of ASK ME volunteers will offer assistance throughout the day.
