EOP 50th Anniversary Celebration volunteering

A reunion celebration is only a success if your classmates come back to celebrate with you. We need a strong group of volunteers who are willing to help create a buzz leading up to Reunion + Homecoming and our EOP 50th Anniversary Celebration. No matter the amount of time you are able to commit, we have an opportunity for you! Visit the volunteering webpage for more information.
