Scenes From NIU Move-In Day http://northernpublicradio.org/post/welcome-students-scenes-niu-move-day <p>The annual ritual of Move-In Day took control of Northern Illinois University's campus today. An estimated 2,500 students will spend the evening unpacking and getting to know their new neighbors. It took 1,000 student volunteers, 100 staff and faculty members, and of course, hundreds of moms, dads, and friends to get their stuff from the curb to the dorm room. Eventually, 5,000 students will make their way into the residence halls.</p> Thu, 23 Aug 2012 21:27:21 +0000 Susan Stephens 17254 at http://northernpublicradio.org Welcome, Students!
