Students share move-in day experiences
First-year students and their families swarmed the sun-soaked Northwestern University campus for move-in day 2016, launching a week of activities for Wildcat Welcome week that came to a close Monday.
We spoke with three freshmen, a wise sophomore and a junior peer advisor during the day of heavy lifting, new roommates and parental goodbyes on Sept. 12.
Two of the first-years interviewed are from the nearby suburbs: Dana Pepowski is from Lake Forest and Angelica Garcia from Lyons. Drew Pomerantz hails from Kansas City.
Listen to the podcast above to learn why the freshmen chose Northwestern, what the move-in process is like and what kind of sage advice our two veteran students had for the Class of 2020.
