This is it: move-in day

You’re officially starting college, moving into the Residence Halls, and starting a whole new chapter of your life. This is where you’ll make lifelong friends, eat popcorn at 2:00 am, and solve all the world’s problems. It’s also where you’ll build your home away from home. We want you to be comfortable and safe, so we’ve put the following list together to help you pack.
