Pack Light: Many students think they need to bring everything from their room at home and move it into their residence hall room on move in day. Keep in mind that the following weekend is labor day - many students return home with extra belongings they realize they don't need. If you are going home on Labor day weekend, consider leaving items at home and retrieving them on that weekend rather than going overboard on move in day.
Pack Well: Put things in tubs with lids where possible - transferring these tubs to our move in cart is very easy, clean and safe. Use suitcases with wheels. Avoid individual loose items that can be cumbersome or possibly damaged during a move in.
