Attention, attention! Volunteer Recruitment for the 2013 Camp Season has officially begun! Every year, UniCamp is operated by over 500 UCLA student volunteers, and we need your help to make sure we fill our ranks this year. Whether it’s by wearing Woodsey Wear on Woodsey Wednesday, presenting about UniCamp at dorm association meetings, or even going to freshmen lectures to present, we need all Woodseys out there to spread the word!!! You have experienced Woodsey Magic yourself, so now it’s time to share the magic with all the potential new volunteers out there! Apps will be online at end of this week and are due on February 22nd at 5 PM!! This year’s Lship Recruitment Committee has been working very hard to beat the record number of apps set last year (over 600!) and here is their comprehensive list of all the ways you can recruit:

Happy recruiting, everybody!!
As a New Woodsey during your first Unicamp meeting, you may be wondering – what are all these weird phrases everyone is using? Go to the BIFF – what? The four crazy people standing in front of me singing songs are called LSHIP? Welcome to Woodsey Lingo!! While it may be overwhelming at first to keep up with all the new phrases, you’ll be a pro in no time! And if you are not sure what they’re talking about, just ask those around you. Old Woodseys are more than willing to help – we all remember being confused at our first meeting! We have all been there. Soon enough you’ll be joining in, too! For now, here’s a little Woodsey Dictionary to help you get started!
