Move-In Day

Residence Life Calls for Volunteers to Help Move Students Into Residence Halls

Residence Life is looking for assistance from faculty and staff to welcome our first-year students into our residence halls on Aug. 30 and 31 by supporting President Julie Sullivan’s Move-In Crew. While our students volunteering for Sully’s Crew will be lifting and carrying students’ items, we are looking for faculty and staff to direct our student crews, assist with hall crowd/cart traffic movement and welcoming our students and families – no lifting or pushing. If you are interested or willing to carry/push items, we would welcome that help as well.

There are three shifts available for volunteering on Friday, August 31

  • 7:15 a.m. – 10 a.m.
  • 9:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.
  • 12:30 p.m. – 4 p.m.

For Thursday, Aug. 30, we are looking for faculty and staff to help move in our out-of-state students (lifting and pushing of carts is included in this move in.) New this year, we are offering our first-year out-of-state students and their roommates an option to move in a day early and attend an event that evening as a means to help them feel more connected to each other and campus early on. If you too are non-Minnesotan and would like to wear a shirt from your home state, have fun with it, or we will provide a Sully’s Move In Crew T-shirt for you to wear.

There are two shifts available for volunteering on Thursday, August 30

  • Noon – 2 p.m.
  • 2 p.m. – 4 p.m.

If you are interested in helping on either Thursday or Friday, please use the link below and sign up to indicate your shift and volunteer choice. All volunteers receive a “Sully’s Crew” T-Shirt to wear during your shift, which will be available for pick up either the day prior or at the time of starting your shift.

Questions can be directed to Bryan Helminiak in Residence Life at or 651-962-6470.
