Move-in Day started Friday at the University of South Dakota as students and faculty welcomed new and returning students to campus for the Fall 2015 semester with a variety of activities.
The DakotaDome parking lot was filled with students and their families checking in at their assigned time where they received their information packets, keys and instructions on driving to the residence halls. Nearly 800 student volunteers, including Sorority and Fraternity Life members and student athletes, were in red shirts lending a helping hand to move in their fellow Coyotes. The system eliminated long lines, waiting and potential traffic congestion on campus.
Besides welcoming the Class of 2019 with a convocation at the DakotaDome, Welcome Week 2015 events included a parents' reception, the Provost’s Picnic, a USD Block Party, Coyotepalooza, a Student Organization Fair, a Graffiti Dance, fraternity and sorority recruitment activities, and much more.
