NATCHITOCHES – Northwestern State University welcomed back about 1,500 residential students Friday and Saturday with a coordinated check-in and move-in process that involved more than 340 volunteers manning eight shifts over two days.
NSU Housing and Residence Life coordinated the process with the help of personnel from First Year Experience, University Police, University Recruiting, Student Affairs, University Athletics as well as volunteer groups and individuals. Demon VIPs, Greeks, University Programming Council members, Gamma Chis, Baptist Collegiate Ministry, Catholic Student Organization and student-athletes joined the effort.
This weekend kicks of Demons Days 2022, a series of events for new and returning students designed to inform, engage and support students with projects and activities that enrich their academic experience, introduce them to Demon traditions, familiarize them with services and resources and welcome them to the NSU family.
Fall classes begin Monday, Aug. 15.
