Make a smooth move to MC

Move-in Day at MC is just around the corner! The move can be hectic, so keep these helpful tips in mind to make your day go smoothly, and get the semester off to a good start.

When do you move?

On Move-in Day:

  • Follow the directions of those helping to move traffic. Many students will be moving at the same time. Keeping with the flow of traffic helps everyone to get unloaded in a timely manner.

  • Unload and check in. While your student is checking in at the front desk of the residence hall, you can begin unloading the car. If weather permits, unload your belongings to the grass outside the building, and then move your car before carrying them to the room.

  • Move your car from the unloading area. After your vehicle is unloaded, please move it to a parking lot.

  • Move in your belongings. Students should have talked with roommates prior to Move-in Day and made final decisions about who should bring which items, but be prepared to bring home duplicate or unneeded items.

  • Take a break! Get a bite to eat at the Union before the welcoming session. After that, it will be time to say your goodbyes and allow your student to begin another year of learning and growing.

Hall directors will be available to answer any questions. They keep in close communication with student orientation leaders, as well as maintenance and safety personnel, so that they can make Move-in Day as smooth as possible.

Join the club! Activities Fair signs up members

Participating in a student organization is not just a lot of fun, it can be an important factor in a student's success, too – as part of the college experience and beyond. Extracurricular activities help students learn and grow beyond the walls of the classroom and provide hands-on training in leadership, teamwork, and time management skills. Joining a campus organization also provides outlets for creativity and stress relief and an opportunity to make friends for life.

This year's annual Student Activities Fair is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 2, 5-6:30 p.m. in the Upper Union. Manchester College club and organization members will be available to answer questions about groups, activities, level of involvement and signing up as a new member.

Manchester College offers more than 60 clubs and organizations – from academic clubs, such as Mock Trial team and Psychological Society to service organizations, such as Habitat for Humanity and Indiana Reading Corps – along with extensive intramural sports offerings. For a complete listing, visit
