Howie’s Helpers is a short-term University of Hartford service opportunity where returning students help incoming first-year students move into their residential spaces. Howie’s Helpers work as a team and rely on one another in order to achieve our common goal of creating a welcoming environment for our new students and their families. Howie’s Helpers volunteers move in early, receive a program t-shirt and meals until the fall meal plan begins

Recognized student organizations through the Office of Student Engagement and Inclusion (OSEI)  have the unique opportunity to be entered into a drawing to win $750 for their organization!
