Praise for teams that moved in residents

Move in 1

Move in 2

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.”
