A Special Thanks for Move-In Day

Posted on 8/29/2014 3:29:05 PM

The Office of Housing, Residential Living, and Dining would like to thank everyone who made our fall 2014 move-in a success.

Nearly 400 volunteer movers, consisting of returning on-campus residents and members from 25 organizations and groups, volunteered a combined total of over 1,600 hours, greeting new students and helping them move in over several days.

We'd also like to thank both our Greek organizations who distributed bottled water on Friday, August 22, and our APSCUF faculty who distributed bottled water, candy, and pens on Saturday, August 23.

Finally, we express our appreciation to University Police, Facilities Management, and the numerous university offices and support staff who contributed countless hours of their time and expertise to ensure the success of move-in. 

Please know these efforts were noticed and appreciated by incoming student and parents, as we received very favorable comments regarding how helpful and welcoming everyone was to our newest members of the IUP community.

—Mike Lemasters, executive director, Office of Housing, Residential Living, and Dining
