The University of Arkansas at Little Rock will be abuzz with activity on Thursday, Aug. 16, as students and their families arrive on campus for Move-In Day.
UA Little Rock is seeking employees, students, alumni, and community volunteers to assist students and their families who will be moving in from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Volunteers are invaluable to the Move-In Day experience by welcoming new students and their families to campus, unloading cars, controlling traffic, and preparing lunch.
“The first day of move-in is always full of excitement and anxiety for new students,” said Patti Light, director of campus living. “Volunteers help give a personal touch to settling in on campus. We will have hundreds of students and guests on Aug. 16, looking to make UA Little Rock connections. We really need those helpful hands and faces to make those connections.”
Check-in for students with last names A-L will be from 8 a.m. to noon while students with last names M-Z can check in between 1-5 p.m.
Check-in locations include the first-floor lobbies of West Hall and East Hall, the Commons Great Room for North Hall and South Hall, and the University Village Clubhouse.
A free lunch of hamburgers, hotdogs, chips, and water will be available outside the Trojan Grill from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
In the Student Commons building, a one-stop shop will be set up from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., where students can get their Trojan identification card, register their vehicle, and request a mailbox.
