Fall Is Coming, Thursday August 29th Is Officially Move In Day UWS
If you went to college, you remember how it felt. The new place, a new stage in life and feeling that freedom of adulthood. If you are a parent of a college student, cue the crying. New and returning students move into the residence halls at the University of Wisconsin-Superior today, and new freshmen begin a three-day orientation program.
A couple of things that are new this year, students will be back in Hawkes Hall and a renovated Ross Hall that underwent renovations over the past year. They will feature suite-style living with new and improved entrances and study areas. Some of the features include: better looking common areas, and better bathroom privacy.
The newly renovated residence halls will be able to house 440 students and this year around 810 students registered to live residence halls, with a record number of returning students living on campus. Classes begin Tuesday, Sept. 3.
Officially, Move in day includes places on Catlin Avenue and begins at 8 a.m. and continues throughout the day. Peak arrival time is from 10 a.m. to early afternoon. Students, faculty and staff on the Move-In Crew will be assisting new arrivals with carrying their belongings to their rooms from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
