More life on Auburn's campus as students move in early

AUBURN, AL (WSFA) -

Auburn University had their first major early move-in day on Friday. About 1,400 students moved into over 30 residence halls.

Friday's early movers were mostly people preparing for sorority recruitment. Over 500 volunteers were needed to help the students get settled into their new rooms, and organizers say that a lot of planning is needed to prepare for such a large wave of people heading to the residence halls.

"We have been really trying to let people know about this for about three months. I've been on the radio, we've been in newspapers, we've gone around and spoke into different groups and just reminding people of how fun it is to see other students come back," said Interim Associate President of Auxiliaries Jon Waggoner. "They're going to one of the biggest changes of their lives, one of the biggest I've had, yet it's just a super fun day and people love to volunteer."

The next big move in day is Aug. 17, and organizers are welcoming anyone that wants to volunteer to apply online.
