Despite dark, rainy weather, bright-eyed first year students and
their families made their way to St. John’s University’s Queens
campus on Saturday, August 29, 2009 for Move-In Day. With boxes and
shopping carts in tow, the group was welcomed by representatives
from the Office of Residence Life, Office of Alumni Relations and
student services groups as they moved into Residence Village.
addition to talking with students and parents, Alumni Relations
staff members distributed “must-have” St. John’s alumni branded
pillow cases and information about how students can get involved
while at the University. Nine alumni also stopped by the Alumni
Relations tent in Montgoris Courtyard to update their contact
information and reconnect with alma mater.
New students were impressed with the service they received
during Move-In Day and a subsequent
shopping day where they received a discount on any supplies
they still needed for their dorm rooms.
"Move-in Day has gone very well,” said Peter Cybulski '13C.
“It's been great to have so many helpers around. My dorm room is
very nice and clean, and I'm looking forward to the start of the
Philip Halikias '13C agreed, saying, "Things have been very
organized, and there have been many carts around to help us move
things back and forth. I'm ready for the start of school."
