Movers and Groovers

More than 6,000 students move in to the university’s 25 residence halls this weekend.

More than 500 Kent State University volunteers are preparing to welcome incoming freshmen to the Kent Campus Thursday morning.

At the beginning of each school year, Kent State University faculty, staff and students volunteer to help incoming freshmen move into the university’s residence halls. The annual service program, called Movers and Groovers, is coordinated by Kent Interhall Council, the student government of the residence halls on the Kent Campus. The volunteers aid new students and their families, providing assistance and helping to make the move-in process less stressful.
