1,500 Volunteers Set For "Groovin' At Move-In" Beginning Wednesday

It’s that time of year again, and soon the Ole Miss campus will once again be filled with new residents. While some students have already begun the move-in process, the initial day of “Groovin at Move-In” will take place tomorrow morning beginning at 9 a.m.
The student housing office has been planning and preparing for this week, and are eager to welcome new students to campus. 1,500 volunteers will be able to assist incoming residents across campus; this marks a new record for the number of move-in volunteers.
“It’s such an exciting week,” Assistant Director for Marketing of Student Housing, Jennifer McClure said. “We have been planning for this day since move-in ended last year. We are excited to welcome our residents to campus, get them settled and we want them to get to know their neighbors, their community and get connected to campus.”
In an effort to keep campus accessible for emergency and utility vehicles during move-in, all trailer and moving truck unloading will take place at the Jackson Avenue Center. Those with trailers and moving trucks will be directed to the Center located across the street from campus. Trucks and trailer can be left in the lot, while transporting items to campus in personal vehicles. 
“Groovin’ at Move In” will begin on Wednesday and carry on through Friday. The volunteers will be out from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Students can continue to move in on Saturday, but volunteers won’t be available. McClure noted that all students should be completely moved in by 3 p.m. Sunday, in time for the annual “Welcome Picnic” in the Grove.
