The UNT community saw the campus come to life during this year’s Mean Green Move In. With close to 5,500 students moving in Aug. 19-21, the campus was alive with activity as family and friends helped students get settled in their new homes.
Led by Housing and Residence Life staff, many departments and volunteers came together to provide support as students moved their belongings into their dorm rooms.
Kaila Nichols, a resident assistant in Kerr Hall, helped get students settled in their new home.
“With Kerr Hall being so large, everyone is doing their best to play their part,” she said. “We all have assigned duties, helping each other as the day goes on and making things as smooth as possible for the new residents. This is a community, one of the largest freshman communities on campus, so it’s important that we make sure everyone always feels at home and comfortable,” said Nichols.
Many of the students who moved onto campus this past weekend are incoming freshmen, such as business management major, Josiah Jones.
“The UNT support staff have been very helpful,” he said. “If there was something that I couldn’t find, there was someone right there to direct me towards where I needed to be.”
Jones shared he is ready to stretch his wings and experience some independence as a young adult.
“I’m ready to start my college career at UNT and go down this adventure to see what it holds for me,” said Jones.
