DUSA Crew

DUSA Crew (DC) is a great way to get involved, meet new friends and enhance your university experience. It's also a great opportunity to learn a new skill you can use in your future career. DC plays a huge role in the events run by DUSA, that happen on campus. Without our volunteers, we wouldn't be able to run the events that we do!

As a DUSA Crew member you assist in planning and execution of all DUSA events that happen on campus and online. Opportunities include assisting with event set up, running activities and event pack down. Other volunteer opportunities available throughout the year include Trip Leaders, Sport Ambassadors, OCamp and Virtual leaders.

DC is a volunteer position so you wouldn't be paid, however you do earn points for each shift you work, which can then be redeemed for e-gift cards. Experienced Volunteers also receive a 'Certificate of Recognition' for their hard work and continued efforts.

We look forward to welcoming you into DUSA Crew!
