Move-In Day celebrates students

Chancellor, administrators, staff and faculty lend a hand

For most students, the first few days and weeks of college are exhilarating and exciting. New friends, navigating a new class schedule and the mapping out of a university campus and its classrooms are a few of the things a new college student needs to tackle in the first few weeks of college life. But before all of that occurs, the big move from home to campus is the first step a freshman student gets to take. In its fifth year, Campus Village, adjacent to the Denver Campus, welcomed its newest residents.

Approximately 700 students, including 80 international students, moved into Campus Village with the help of their families and volunteer students, faculty and staff. The UC Denver students living in Campus Village this year include:

  • 425 freshmen
  • 91 sophomores
  • 55 juniors
  • 17 seniors
  • 11 graduate students

Move-In Day was also a chance for incoming students to meet and visit with Chancellor Jerry Wartgow. Wartgow, Rod Nairn, provost, Andy Jhanji, vice chancellor of advancement and chief of staff, Frank Sanchez, associate vice chancellor for student affairs, Dan Howard, dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and other faculty and staff all lent a hand carrying students’ goods to their new apartments.
