Move-in day for UWM freshmen
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Thousands of UW Milwaukee students are settling into their home away from home for the semester including several thousand freshmen.
Move-in activities began Tuesday and will continue Wednesday and Thursday.
The University has the move-in process down to a science to avoid congestion.
Each student is given a time to move-in, then they come into the front to get their keys, and then they are funneled into the parking garage to unload and go directly up-to their rooms. Because of this system, there are no road closures in place for move-in. Traffic is slower though around the residence halls.
This week, more than 4,000 students are expected to move into campus residence halls including about 3,000 freshmen.
“I’m excited to meet my suitemates and have the opportunity to study creative writing which is what I’ve always wanted to study,” says incoming freshman Allie Habeck.
“Kind of excited. A little bit nervous, but just because it’s different but excited just to do my own thing finally I guess,” says freshman Ryan Fields.
“It’s just such a different experience from what I’m used to where I used to live and I really, really love it,” says John Pelikan.
More students will move in Wednesday. Classes start next Tuesday.
