On Friday, Aug. 12, University Housing once again managed a seamless move-in day for more than 2,500 freshman and transfer students. Chancellor Everts said move-in day is “always one of the most exciting days on campus, and one of my favorites. It’s a beginning full of possibilities for our new students. Our housing staff and the hundreds of volunteers have made moving in all these students seamless. All of us in the Appalachian Community are dedicated to making the rest of the students’ experience at Appalachian a fulfilling and transformational one.”

According to Susan Davies, associate vice chancellor for enrollment management, “The incoming freshman class is shaping up to be the largest, most diverse class so far, and the freshman class will exceed 3,100. We also have about 1,250 transfer students and more than 500 new graduate students on campus.”
