For Fashion Week related opportunities  the following procedures will also apply

  • Emails for opportunities will be sent to you during LIM College‚Äôs common lunch hour. This will allow more students to be available to log into the Symplicity system to RSVP.
  • You will be allowed to put your name on a wait list for Fashion Week events. The Center for Career Development will look at every RSVP and cancel any student who has reached the two volunteer maximum. The wait list will be used to replace students who have exceeded the number of times they can volunteer.

At LIM College, volunteering is a privilege and failure to honor commitments could result in the loss of these privileges. Students are not guaranteed volunteer opportunities. First come, first served.
