The numbers are in: Another record for Res Life
We’re a week away from freshman move-in day, and it looks like another record year for on-campus housing. We told you last month that Residence Life is full for fall, with about 100 students on the housing wait list. That number was down to 31 as of Thursday (Aug. 23), with a record 2,050 students (about 28 more than last year) set to live on campus. More than 700 new freshmen will live in on-campus housing this fall, along with about 1,200 continuing students, 31 U.S. exchange or international students and more than 110 transfers. Of the 2,050 students expected to live on campus, 385 already are doing so — summer residents, student employees and student athletes among them. And speaking of summer, housing also was provided to 175 students during summer 2012 — another new record. Freshmen will start moving in at 8:30 a.m. next Thursday, Aug. 30.
