Freshmen Move-In Day 2016

Photos: ‘Green shirts’ made Freshman Move-In Day 2016 a breeze

The gratitude came in fast and furious — both in person and via social posts. Most sounded something like this: “We can’t thank you enough for the help moving our son (or daughter) in.”

And it seems that campus volunteers now have a nickname, “green shirts.” Here is a post from Facebook, “The green shirts that assisted us today were amazing. We were moved in quickly. They setup the bunks for us in five minutes. Well done and thank you.”

And one more, “I think I’ve said 100 times today, thank goodness for the green shirts…”

Thank you to the 100-plus faculty, staff, alumni, community members, and students (most who wore the signature Move-In Day green polo shirts) who helped move about 900 UW-Green Bay freshmen on campus today. What a welcome. Well done!
