  • Move-in for students will run through Friday “We will have just over 5,100 students moving into residence halls this year. Our largest move-in ever.”
  • Reynolds Residence Hall has reopened after being offline for all of last year for renovation. The renovation included replacement of all building systems including plumbing, electrical and HVAC – and also a facelift with new carpet, furniture, painting and totally renovated bathrooms, he noted. Reynolds will be the temporary home this year for Grogan Residential College, while Grogan Hall is offline for renovation this year.
  • At Spartan Village’s Highland Residence Hall, which officially opened in January, students will enjoy a new Subway Café.
  • On the evening of Saturday, Aug. 23, Housing & Residence Life, along with Athletics and the Campus Activities Board, will host their annual “Opening Carnival” on the Quad Lawn and Moran Commons fountain area. Students will enjoy carnival games, food, caricature artists, inflatables and lots of fun. “This is our third year for this event and it keeps getting bigger,” says Johnson.
