New Students Move Into Residence Halls With Help From Movers and Groovers
More than 1,000 volunteers from the Kent State University community welcomed and assisted new students as they moved into their residence halls on freshman move-in day, Sunday, Aug. 18. The annual community program, known as Movers and Groovers, is coordinated by Kent Interhall Council, the student government of the Kent Campus residence halls.
“Movers and Groovers is such an amazing way to welcome our students,” said Jill Jenkins, executive director of Residence Services at Kent State. “Kent Interhall Council is the group responsible for the student-run and organized program. Volunteers included fraternities and sororities, campus ministry groups, academic groups, faculty and university departments. For fall 2019, Kent Interhall Council students took the program to new heights! Move-in truly takes a village, and Movers and Groovers is one way Kent Interhall Council makes our students feel welcome.”
The Movers and Groovers program is part of Kent State’s KSU Kickoff, an orientation program that runs for four days prior to the start of fall classes. KSU Kickoff includes activities and events to encourage students to explore the Kent State community and provides a smooth transition to the university environment.
