Northwestern State University was a scene of well practiced efficiency as 850 first year students moved into their new dorms on NSU’s move-in day Saturday, August 17. The new Demons were welcomed to campus by a large group of student volunteers from almost every student organization and several of NSU’s sports teams. They were joined by community and faculty volunteers who helped students and their families unpack their vehicles. In addition to helping the new students settle in, the volunteers also went a long way to making the freshmen feel welcomed to their new university-and its community.
In addition to the students who moved in Saturday, off campus freshmen and ones who moved in earlier bring the total up to around 1,750, an increase from last year. The Natchitoches Parish Journal would like to take this opportunity to welcome NSU’s incoming freshman class and wish them all the best in their studies. We look forward to seeing your talents displayed on the field, on the stage and in all of the many different ways that your presence makes our city a better place to live.
