NEW CONCORD, Ohio – Well, it is that time of year again for students and their love ones to carry refrigerators, clothes and more up their dorm room stairs.
It was move-in day this morning at Muskingum University, and students could be seen all over the campus carrying heavy bins and more. Muskingum University Director of Admissions, Marcy Ritzert said move-in day is always an exciting day and it is a great start to the semester.
“Besides the physical of moving in, there is so much emotion that is happening today. Parents are dropping their students off. They will check in with us, they will get their room key and take care of some other business but then they are actually moving into their rooms, unpacking their residence halls. There are our current students up at the residence halls that are helping unload cars and it gives the first years a chance to meet them,” said Ritzert.
Ritzert said after they get moved in, they have convocation which is the official start of school ceremony that both parents and students can attend. Ritzert also said they have people this year from all around, not only the country but the world, and that is great for this area’s diversity.
“All over the country. Most of our students do come from Ohio but we have students in our incoming class this year from Colorado, from Utah, from Australia actually, China really all over the place,” added Ritzert.
Ritzert wants to welcome the new class, and she said the faculty is looking forward to another school year.
