Residence halls opening for fall semester

Aug. 23, 2002

KALAMAZOO -- WMU's fall semester will officially begin Tuesday, Sept. 3, with classes starting at 4 p.m., but new and returning students will be on campus by the thousands before then, as they flock to settle into the campus atmosphere and prepare for the start of a new semester.

Residence halls open for all students beginning at 9 a.m. Friday, Aug. 30. Most students will move into the residence halls that Friday and Saturday, but some will not return to campus until after the long Labor Day weekend.

Early move-in for WMU's residence halls begins on Sunday, Aug. 25, exclusively for freshmen who have chosen to take part in Bronco Days. Students who have registered for Bronco Days may move into their residence halls Aug. 25 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Aug. 26 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

WMU's Bronco Buddies will be available to assist new and returning students during the move-in period from Aug. 25 to Sept. 3.
