Viterbo students move in tomorrow; classes begin Monday

 LA CROSSE, Wis—For parents it’s good-bye, for students it’s "hello college," and for Viterbo College officials, it all means helping a large number of young people deal with the tremendous change that will be going on in their lives. The annual process begins tomorrow (Thursday) for students who will be moving into Viterbo’s various residences in anticipation of the start of classes Monday (Sept. 30).

 Most are scheduled to move in from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

 The reason for the early move in is to provide time for new student orientation activities targeted primarily to first year students. In order to improve the chances for success, students—many of whom are moving from home for the first time—are provided with a variety of activities and strategies to deal with stress, homesickness, and other fears that go with starting college.

 "We want to give students a preview of what they will encounter," said Rob Anderson, Marian Hall Complex Director. We find that one of the other most important benefits of orientation is that new students get the chance to make friends and contacts which really breaks the ice for many worrying if they will fit in."

 Sixteen Residence Assistants who are typically sophomore, junior and senior Viterbo students will also be on hand to help students move in.

 Most new students will move in between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

 For additional information, contact Jason Ramaker at 796-3041 (Director of Residence Life) or Rob Anderson (Marian Hall Complex Director) at 796-3042. Both will also be at the Student Union Thursday to assist with orientation activities. A list of activities is also attached.
