CU Nooz’s Guide to Move-In Day

Move-In Day can be a mess, with thousands of students moving into their North Campus dorms. Stay ahead of the curve with these helpful tips:

  • To make moving into your room a breeze, don’t bring anything.

  • Secure a coveted parking spot close to your dorm arriving on campus 3 weeks late.

  • Organize everyone in your dorm to move everyone in fire-brigade style.

  • Emotions will run high, so it’s recommended that parents take sedatives to feel emotionally dull.

  • If you had one of those Mary Poppins bags that are normal sized but can fit lots of big stuff inside, that would help.

  • Don’t forget to schedule your parent swim test.

  • Be sure to practice your whipping strategy before hand. An experienced whipper can encourage friends and family members to do the job in half the time.

  • Meeting your roommates can be a big moment, and lavish gifts are expected. Two months salary is a good price range.

  • Avoid the big crowds by calling in a bomb threat.

  • Drop off your Post Owl at Appel’s Rookery before moving into your living quarters.

  • Don’t get ripped off by paying for campus laundry. Bring your own washer/dryer.

  • Make sure you go to the right campus. North Campus for Freshman, West for Upperclassmen, and Ithaca College Campus for Ithaca College students.

  • Have physically strong parents.
