SUNY Broome celebrated it’s 8th “Move-in Day” at the Student Village by welcoming 240 new students to the residence hall on Saturday, August 28, 2021. In addition to our new student residents, the Student Village houses six Resident Assistants and their supervisors, Community Director, Kalis Nunes, and graduate assistant, Maddie Schmauch.
Guided by members of our Public Safety team, families were directed into campus. A new check-in process, facilitated by members of the Student Development team, was included in the move-in steps to ensure additional health and safety precautions.
Student Village Community Director, Kalis Nunes, helped coordinate Move-In Day in conjunction with teams from Student Development and Public Safety. “The goal of today is to safely and seamlessly move in about 240 new residents to the Student Village and to reassure their families that they will be well taken care of,” said Nunes.
A key part of Move-In Day’s seamless welcome is the support provided by our student, faculty, and staff volunteers. “I am really thankful for our student and staff volunteers. Many of our student volunteers are new EOP students who are helping out today to wrap up their Summer Advancement Academy and to meet their new neighbors. We are also being supported by faculty and staff from across campus,” said Nunes.
For Radiologic Technology Clinical Instructor, Russ Dunham, SUNY Broome’s Move-In Day was his second college move-in event of the week. “I just moved my son into SUNY Potsdam on Wednesday. Unlike today, there were no students or volunteers to help us. So, I thought I would lend a hand to help our students. Comparing the two, our move-in process is definitely more organized and smoother for the families participating,” said Dunham.
A picnic lunch for the new residents, their families, and the volunteers was provided by SUNY Broome’s community partner, Central Baptist Church. “Each year we serve between 500-700 hot dogs. We are so happy to be involved with Move-In Day and genuinely look forward to it every year. It’s a wonderful opportunity to welcome 200+ new students to the community,” said Pastor LD Maxson.
Vice President for Student Development & Chief Diversity Officer, Dr. Carol Ross-Scott, personally greeted the new residents and their families, and encouraged them to celebrate the experience of becoming a residential student.
