PLYMOUTH, N.H.––One of the busiest and most exciting days of the year for Plymouth State University and surrounding communities arrived Monday, September 3, with nearly 1,800 students and their families converging on campus for the annual Move-In day. The University traditionally has held Move-In prior to Labor Day, but decided to switch it this year so students would have a more seamless transition to the start of the academic year on Tuesday, September 4.

“This day is always a joyous one as we welcome new and returning students and their families,” said PSU President Sara Jayne Steen.  “Parents are proud, and students are eager to start classes.  The entire campus is energized.”

PSU Move-In allows students to quickly and efficiently fill the University’s eight residence halls and apartments with the help of staff, students and families.PSU’s athletic teams, including the entire football team, help incoming students park, unload and move their belongings. David Bowen of Arlington, Massachusetts, whose daughter Krysta, is a first-year student, said he was impressed with the process.

“Very smooth, it went very well.  From the police officers directing us where to park, to the football team helping us unload, this has worked out real well,” Bowen said.

Move-In is a family affair for many students

“It’s moved very quickly, so I’m very happy with how everything has gone, especially with the help from the guys on the football team,” said MacDonald.

PSU has more than 4,200 undergraduate students, 2,300 of whom live on campus. By Labor Day evening, more than 80 percent of the students had moved in to their on-campus residences.
