Moving into the dorms is a logistics challenge for college students
Back to school can involve some serious logistics beyond choosing the right backpack and coolest pencil holder.
When you are talking college, it can mean fitting too much stuff in too little space and finding ways to sneak in a few comforts of home.
Orange County’s biggest universities have been holding move-in days for their thousands of students who will spend the next year in school housing.
On Thursday, Cal State Fullerton welcomed students who were moving in for the year ahead of Saturday’s official start of school … most classes actually start on Monday. They students came wheeling stuffed suitcases, lugging boxes and carrying bags of new bedding and supplies.
Earlier this week, Chapman University also welcomed students living in its on-campus residence halls and off-campus school run housing. Some 92 percent of the Orange school’s first-year students will live on campus.
UC Irvine is on a quarter system and traditionally starts much later. First day of school is Sept. 27, so students won’t be moving in until a few days prior.
