Our Graduation Stall Volunteers form part of a team attending the Association merchandise stall at OU graduations. Apart from engaging with excited graduates, their families and friends, and promoting and selling a wide range of fabulous OU branded merchandise to graduates, volunteers have an opportunity to take an active part in this special day by processing and celebration each graduate. You need to have less than £70 travel expenses for the day and give up one day of your time on the stall.  Applications are now closed for 2022 but will reopen later this year for 2023.
