Students swarm LSU for move in day
BATON ROUGE - Around 2,500 students lugged bags, suitcases, and furniture onto the LSU campus today for the official on-campus move-in.
The university said most of those students are freshmen, and 700 volunteers including student-athletes are on hand to help them get settled.
"We're getting them introduced to some of the activities that we're going to be hosting, and assisting them in moving all their things up," said student volunteer Kirstie Sehieffler.
Sehieffler said that the process takes time, but the volunteers are stationed throughout campus to point the new students in the right direction.
The university has a number of events scheduled and resources available for students to get everything ready for the start of classes. The events extend through the beginning of September and includes tours of classrooms, a welcome lunch, and even an open mic night.
Students moving in today included those staying in Blake & Acadian Halls, RCC, Laville, Pentagon, Broussard, Kirby Smith, and Herget.
