    Did move in crew, seeing how much stuff some college students bring, especially girls, was very eye opening.
    Kids who got help from the move in crew have no idea how good they had it. There was no move-in crew anytime I moved in.

    Same here. Moving couches or sofa sleepers was a *****!

    Jones floor in Helser. Close to the door by the parking lot. I moved in a day after my friend from high school. He had our loft setup and I didn't have much to do.

    It was kind of awkward.
    Had a similar experience but dad was with me, exchanged knowing smiles..


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Re: Anyone remember their college move-in experience?

    I just got back from moving my stepdaughter to ASU and let me tell you those guys have move in down to a science. They have 1 hour blocks that you are assigned (ours was 7AM to 8AM). You go to the Student center and get your parking pass, then they funnel you on this route that takes you right in front of the dorm. You then back up and there are 3 -4 student volunteers there with big carts and big boxes on wheels, you unload all your stuff in them. The volunteers, the student and one parent get in line and go up to the room, while the other parent goes and parks in the parking ramp 2 blocks away. I then took the stairs to floor 11 and met my wife and stepdaughter at the room. The volunteers then unload the cart/giant box on wheels and go back to help more while you decorate your room.

    Took us 45 minutes from getting the parking pass at the student center until the movers left the room. And only 1 trip up the elevator.

    I called Revkah a liar in our first conversation, then I told her off. It was pretty romantic.
    I love these kinds of stories. Makes our beer & ice cream & me turning him down the second time he called seem much less disfunctional. :)

    I wish UNO had that. My son and I spent two hours yesterday going back and forth getting stuff. (Ok, I spent the first hour and made my son do the rest.) His room was the farthest down the hall, so got my walk in.

    Re: Anyone remember their college move-in experience?

    Larch, '01. I remember moving in and immediately knowing I wouldn't last too long with my assigned roommate. I found a friend from high school was living across the hall, and I ended up living with him the next semester. Been best friends ever since. I met a couple guys, one of whom was a 5th year senior still living in the dorms, as they were running down the hall and smashing their heads into the wall, testing out another guy's motorcycle helmet. We watched Animal House (great way to kick it all off) and drank beer. It was great. Still talk to a bunch of those guys.

    Helser Elwood in fall of 2007. This is the only thing I really remember about move in day. Completely drenched a grey shirt in sweat.

    Well, that and my HS gf crying as she said goodbye. No, it didn't work out, but that was a good warm up for the real thing a couple months later.
