MSU Gets Ready For Move In Day

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

Thousands of students will be moving to Montana State University starting Wednesday for the upcoming school year.

Officials are expecting this to be a record-breaking year.

More than 2500 students will move into the residents halls at Montana State University Wednesday.

Many are expected to be in by noon for another round of freshman orientation in the afternoon.

M.S.U. spokesman Tracy Elig said this year's enrollment is expected to break last year's record.

"We anticipate a record enrollment for the university this fall," said Elig.  "Last fall at this time we had 14,660 students."

Elig said the enrollment numbers aren't finalized yet so we don't have specific numbers.

Jordan Garceau is an assistant hall director in the South Hedges residence hall getting ready to handle that record number of students.

She said she has been getting ready for this day with R. A.'s for ten days of training and getting the hall ready.

"We've decorated the lobby so students feel welcome when they get here, ads advertising for Resident Hall Association which is a student organization within the hall that students can get involved in," said Garceau.

Wednesday, the South Hedges resident hall will be at capacity at 600 students. M.S.U. Housing Director Tammie Brown said that's the case in all the residence halls at M.S.U. this year. In fact, the campus has more beds now with the new Suite Three opening this semester.

South Hedges Hall Director Korrin Engel says her staff is ready for everyone to move in.

"This year we are making sure all of our students are well served and we have customer service right at the forefront," said Engel.  "We will have R. A.'s stationed around the building to help answer questions and make sure every student is taken care of."

Students will only have a few days to get settled into their rooms.

Classes start Monday August 26.

Traffic Changes

There will also be some traffic changes around the university associated with move-in day. 

West Harrison Street will be one-way westbound from South Wilson Avenue. South Eight Avenue will be one-way southbound from College Street, and West Cleveland Street will be one-way eastbound to South Seventh Avenue.

The largest number of students will be moving into residence halls in the part of campus bordered by College Street, 11th Avenue, Lincoln Street and 19th Avenue.

University officials are asking people to avoid the campus area if at all possible during move-in days.
