MEDIA ADVISORY: Students return to campus 

What: 

Many students already are on campus participating in activities including marching band camp, football practice, international student orientation, and Greek life activities affiliated with sororities and fraternities. For help developing stories related to those activities, contact astefanoni@pittstate.edu 

Students who will live on campus and in Block22 this year will arrive this weekend for Move-In Day.  

When: 

Throughout the day on Saturday, they'll be assisted by their families and university volunteers including President Steve Scott, who will be helping during the morning shift starting at 9 a.m. at Nation Hall.  

It's a day of great excitement on campus and in the community, and the return of students definitely  impacts the local economy.  

PRIOR to Saturday, you may contact Jason Kegler, director of university housing, 620-235-4945, or ckegler@pittstate.edu to make arrangements for coverage. Media will not be allowed inside individual dorm rooms. 

Note: 

Students for Sustainability, the PSU Recycling Center, and University Housing are working together to reduce the amount of cardboard that goes to the landfill on Move-In Day. Their goal: to collect, flatten, and amass cardboard from boxes so it can be sent to the SEK Recycling Center, and to introduce students and their parents to the culture of sustainability at PSU.  

When: 

The group will be working in several locations near residence halls from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., including near Dellinger and Nation Hall, Willard Hall, Trout and Bowen Hall, Tanner Annex, and Crimson Commons.  

PRIOR to Saturday, please contact Tucker Jessip at trjessip@gus.pittstate.edu or Dr. Catherine Hooey at chooey@pittstate.edu to arrange coverage.
