Campus Gears Up for Operation Move-In

Written by  Courtesy Georgia Southern Thursday, 14 August 2014 09:11

  More than 3,000 incoming students are expected to arrive Friday to take up residence.  Over 1,000 faculty and staff members, current students and members of the community will help them move in.


  Vickie Shaw, assistant director of University Housing at Georgia Southern said “Last year, 3,131 students checked in on the day of Operation Move-In, 966 arrived prior to that day…and another 960 arrived the day after.   If history repeats itself, and it has for several years, we will have about that same number this year.”


  A Georgia Southern tradition since 2004, Operation Move-In provides faculty, staff and students an opportunity to volunteer to help new students make a seamless transition as they begin their college career. Volunteers greet family members and friends, hold doors, help unload suitcases and furniture, provide campus directions and serve as a friendly face to first time and returning visitors.


  Chris MacDonald, executive director of University Housing said walk-in volunteers from the students and community will be accepted at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Friday at the Nessmith-Lane Conference Center on Friday.  Faculty and staff who have not yet signed up are encouraged to do so online, Shaw said.
