Community Invited to M-U-W Move-in Day

Posted by Andrew Harrison | August 07, 2012 / 05:22pm | Local News, Education
COLUMBUS, Miss. -- Mississippi University for Women faculty and staff will roll up their sleeves and lend a helping hand to students moving into the residence halls Saturday, Aug. 11, starting at noon. The community is invited to participate.

Students will be greeted by MUW staff as they enter the front gate, according to Sirena Cantrell, director of community living.

Routes have been designed to reduce traffic bottlenecks and to speed up the process. Directional signs and instructions will be provided by MUW police and Welcome Week staff members.

Cantrell said, "The department of community living has set aside this time for our students to come to campus to move into their new home. There will be numerous faculty, staff and students to assist families during the day.

"This day is very special to our students because it is a start of a new chapter in their life. By having many volunteers on site during the day, family members are able to get all questions answered and the help they need to make this a successful start of their child's college career."

Move-In Day will kick off Welcome Week activities. Other activities scheduled include a Block Party, New Student Serenade, Late Night Breakfast, Social Club/Greek Life Ice Cream Social, Poster Sale, Social-oke, Mud Volleyball Tourney and Commuter/Transfer Student Social.

If you would like to volunteer on Move In Day, please contact Cantrell at (662) 329-7127.

Registration will be held Tuesday, Aug. 14 and classes begin Wednesday, Aug. 15.
