Move-In Day Set For August 19 At USC Upstate

August 9, 2012 at 3:08 pm

Thousands of college students will soon be moving into residence halls across college campuses. With the arrival of the students, come carloads of their stuff.

The University of South Carolina Upstate will be overflowing with cars, trucks, vans, and even a few U-Hauls on Sunday, August 19 when incoming freshmen students move in the residence halls.

Students will move in to Magnolia House between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. and to Palmetto House between 1:00 and 5:00 p.m. The students and their parents will be served dinner in the dining hall from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m.

“Move-In Day is a great way to meet students and welcome them to the Upstate campus community,” said Mandy Whitten, director of housing and residential life at USC Upstate. “A total of 1,000 students will reside on the USC Upstate campus this fall.”

USC Upstate faculty and staff volunteer to assist students and families throughout the day with unloading cars, transporting boxes to dorm rooms, answering questions about the campus, and other necessary tasks.
