Managing News Editor
Freshmen and others students
living in the residence halls this
coming year will see several
changes to move-in this August
as part of a University initiative to
increase on-campus safety.
Most notably, move-in, which
has run over four days in the last
week of August in years past, will
take place only Aug 28 through 29
this year, with hours extended to
7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday and 8
a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday.
Groups that typically move in
early will instead be housed tem-
porarily in East Quad until the 26,
when they will move in to to their
permanent dorms, with the excep-
tion of Move-in Makers, who will
move immediately into their home
buildings. MIMs are a group of
students who volunteer to assist
with the move-in process.

anxiety and vulnerability fresh-
men often feel on campus in their
