Moving in the right way

Mean Green Move-In 2014

Mean Green Move-In is planned for Aug. 16, and many volunteers will help that day by carrying boxes up flights of stairs, enduring hot weather and helping students to start their year off right.

Despite the work and the heat, volunteers such as Rodney Mitchell, associate dean of students, find that helping students move in is very rewarding.

On Aug. 16 faculty members, staff members and students will be at residence halls helping students move into their rooms in preparation of the fall semester, which starts Aug. 24. From 7:45 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., volunteers will be at their stations around the various residence halls. Last year around 90 percent of residents moved in during Move-In day, said Eric Johnson, residence life coordinator for UNT Housing.

Everyone who volunteers receives a Move-In Day T-shirt and lunch on the Crumley Hall lawn.

“It’s an enjoyable process,” said Mitchell. “There are different kinds of jobs volunteers can do, including moving students in, directing families, check-in and checking out carts.”

Mitchell said volunteers could be asked to help carry just about anything, and students really appreciate the help.

“Sometimes families come with large trailers because the student has many things,” he said.

Not only do students have a lot of luggage but it is a stressful time for them too.  Moving is never easy but Mitchell and other volunteers do their very best to lighten the load and have succeeded for years in making a happy and exciting Mean Green Move-In day.
