A school year must always start with something, nonacademic, MOVE-IN-DAY! The first Move in-Day of the fall semester is when First Year students move into their dorms. Staff members and student leaders make the process easier by directing them, providing bins to make the process of moving their belongings from the parking lot to their rooms easier, and extra hands to help with the moving process. This Year I had the pleasure of assisting with move-in day as an officer of the Wentworth Student Government.
The day started bright and early at 7:30, in the morning with the first wave of students arriving. Each car that entered our main parking lot was greeted by some very enthusiastic staff members and students. Families were told where they could park and what the procedure was for moving in. We also had Wentworth calendars for the families to take home with them. I was one of the students that got to direct and greet all of the excited families. Some of us simply put hands up, motioning cars where to park, others would line up bins in every other parking space for families to transport their belongings to their student’s dorm.
The process that we used, and how everyone had their own specific role really made the day a great success. And I had a lot of fun greeting, and helping first year students move-in. I even learned something, if you are going to stand in the sun all day, you really should reapply sunscreen before eight hours pass!
