The weeklong schedule may help ease some of the pressure from the extra traffic and need for parking. Students will be moving into their assigned campus homes according to this schedule:
Beginning Monday, about 1,100 women registered for Panhellenic recruitment, along with another 800 affiliated sorority women, will begin moving in. Employees who park in Bryan Mall Circle can expect a large number of residents to park and unload in that area.
Then, on Wednesday, students who were approved for early arrival will move in to various locations on campus.
The next day, Thursday, Aug. 16, continuing students will move into Douthit West, Calhoun Courts, Thornhill, Stadium Suites, McCabe, Core C&D and The Quad. This is a break from earlier years when continuing students weren’t scheduled to move in until Sunday on Move-in Weekend.
Residential Living Director Leasa Evinger said they hope those experienced returning students will help new students move in and get acclimated when they arrive on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 17 and 18.
Volunteers still are needed to help welcome new students from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday and Saturday. If you are interested in volunteering, email Paige Zoltewicz (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Highway 93, which is to be open to traffic next week, will be busy Thursday, Aug. 16, and Friday, Aug. 17, as students move into the new Douthit Hills buildings. Adding to traffic will be the nearly 4,000 students moving into downtown apartments at the same time.
On Friday, Aug. 17, employee parking spaces will not be available in the Bryan Mall lot and more traffic should be expected on Fort Hill Street as well as in the Sirrine parking lot.
