North Central College stayed a step ahead of the storms as residents moved into their new homes on Wednesday.
Heavy rainfalls and strong winds could have made move in day a nightmare for new students at North Central College, but luckily a crew made up of admissions staff, orientation leaders and the NCC football team had a foolproof plan in place for the day.
“We have the boys split between Rall and Seager. So what we would do is we have the car and then we’d know the number of the room. So then we round up as many people as we could and have them take all of the stuff just as quick as we can to the room itself and then the student can go get checked in,” said Emily Molidor, Orientation Leader at North Central College.
Students and their families joined in on this bucket brigade and were “blown away” by how smoothly their move-in went.
Before noon, around 80% of residents had already been moved into their dorms.
North Central expects 580 first year students, raising the school’s total to over 3,000 for the third year in a row.
