Move-In 2007 a Success at PSU

September 2nd, 2007 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, NH — Plymouth State University and the Plymouth and Holderness communities welcomed nearly 2,300 students back to campus Sunday, Sept. 2, for the University’s annual Move-In day.

By Sunday evening, it is expected that more than 80 percent of the students will have moved into their on-campus residences. The remainder will arrive on Monday and Tuesday before classes start Wednesday, Sept. 5.

It’s the busiest day of the year for the campus and surrounding communities as students move back in preparation for a new school year.

Sunny skies and many smiling faces greeted students who quickly filled the University’s seven residence halls, including the newly reopened Mary Lyon Hall, which has undergone a $15 million, year-long renovation.

PSU President Sara Jayne Steen continued her Move-In day tradition of personally greeting students and their families to the campus community.

PSU athletes, including the football team, pitched-in and helped their classmates move their belongings into the residence halls.

Although Move-In day can be hectic, it went exceptionally well this year and its success leaves students, staff and faculty primed for a great year.
