Move-In Day for incoming Northwestern State University students will be from 7:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17 and community volunteers are invited to help welcome the students and their families to campus.
“We are grateful to the Natchitoches community for their support of NSU and welcome community volunteers for Move-In Day,” said Van Erikson, director of First Year Experience. “If you are part of a civic or service group, church or business that would like to be involved, please let us know.”
Volunteers are needed to cover shifts from 7:30-9:30 a.m., 8:30-10:30 a.m., 9:30-11:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Volunteers should report to the Move-In Headquarters tent at Iberville Dining Hall. From there, they will be shuttled to their assigned residence hall – University Columns, University Place I or University Place II. Volunteer parking is in the lower Sabine lot.
“We hope that the Natchitoches-NSU community will help us create a positive and memorable move-in experience for our new and returning students,” Erikson said. “Our volunteers are great at assist new students in finding their rooms and buildings, meeting and greeting family members, handing out water, answering questions and of course, helping move a box or two. Please show your Demon pride by wearing your favorite Northwestern t-shirt and volunteering. While our new students fear the task of packing, the crowds, roommate encounters and leaving home we can make their first day at Northwestern State University a great one.”
