Nearly 3,000 students moved into our residence halls this week, and parents are praising the highly planned and well executed move-in process that included assistance from student organizations, Physical Facilities and other departments.
Susan Burdette of Dennison, Ohio, helped her daughter Jacklyn move into Spicer Hall.
“My hat is off to all who helped with move-in,” Susan Burdette said. “What a great day. It was very organized. On a day that was emotionally challenging, it was so nice not to have to stress out over the move.”
Dr. David Baker, the Margaret Clark Morgan executive director of the Drs. Nicholas and Dorothy Cummings Center for the History of Psychology, and assistant director Dr. Cathy Faye participated in a meeting hosted by Dr. Kimberlyn Leary of the Council on Women and Girls Wednesday at the White House.
The Cummings Center is developing a collaborative exhibit that focuses on women in the history of the social and behavioral sciences. Above, from left are Baker, Leary, Faye, and Dr. Shari Miles-Cohen of the American Psychological Association.
