This year’s shortage in Slope Day volunteers is not conducive to the safety of attendees, according to members of the Slope Day Programming Board .
Peter Zawistowicz ’14, promotions director for SDPB, said that in comparison to previous years, there is a “concerning” shortage in the necessary number of current volunteers needed for a safe Slope Day, with only about 200 people signed up so far.
“Every year we’re trying to recruit between 400 and 800 volunteers, aiming for the people who can walk around the Slope, give out water or work the carnival events on Ho Plaza.” he said. “Compared to numbers in previous years, we’re falling short of the target.”
