August 7, 2014 - University of Memphis students living in campus housing will receive a  welcome as warm as the summer weather as they move into their residence halls Thursday and Friday, Aug. 21 and 22. A team of U of M volunteers will be on hand to help students move their clothing, computers, refrigerators, microwaves, TVs and other necessities of college life into their on-campus rooms.

U of M President M. David Rudd will be among the 100 faculty and staff who have signed on to help with Warm Welcome. Volunteers include students, groundskeepers, professors, administrative assistants and others from the U of M community.

University representatives will greet students and their parents in the parking lots, provide them with water and cold soft drinks, and lend assistance in carrying items up to rooms. The offices of Residence Life and Physical Plant and Planning will direct activities.

Some freshmen and students in living/learning programs will move in Thursday between 1 and 4:30 p.m. Most students are expected to arrive Friday between 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Approximately  2,000 students enrolled at the University of Memphis this fall will live in campus housing.
