LABEL BELONGINGS:There will be a lot excitement on campus on move in day! There will be a lot of people, and action going on and nothing would be worse than having one of your boxes of belongings lost in the shuffle. We suggest that you label all of your boxes with your first and last name so that if it's found, we can get it to you. MOVING CARTS, HAND TRUCKS & THE MOVE IN CREW:The College will have a limited amount of moving carts and hand trucks available to use during move-in. Additionally, there will be upperclassmen athletes available to help bring your boxes to your room (another reason why it's best that your boxes and belongings are labeled with your first and last name). BE READY TO GET YOUR STEPS IN:Moving in can take a lot of work, and can be physical. Hines Hall is an eight story building with two elevators. Pouch Hall is a four story building, without an elevator, and a flight of stairs to enter the building. For both buildings, we suggest that students and families wear comfortable clothing and closed toed shoes. COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR ROOMMATE BEFORE MOVE IN DAY:It's important for roommates to connect and communicate before moving in. Make sure that you regularly check your AIC Email to see if you've received any messages from your roommate. Talking to your roommate before moving in will allow you to start the conversation on things like who will bring what to the room (ex: who will bring the microwave) , how/if you'll share food, or how you both will want the room to look. Setting your roommate expectations early will help build a great and lasting roommate relationship.
