About 2,700 students—along with their family and friends and more than 500 volunteers—will descend on the student residence halls at Cal State Long Beach (CSULB) for “Move-in Day” as incoming students move into their new campus homes for the 2014-15 academic year on Saturday, Aug. 23, 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
President Jane Close Conoley is scheduled to attend her first Move-in Day since recently joining CSULB and will be among the volunteers helping parents and incoming students. She will be at the Hillside Residence Hall from 9-11 a.m. Hillside is located between Earl Warren Drive and Merriam Way.
Move-in day focuses on the success of thousands of students entering college. Parents, faculty, administrators, staff and students are afforded an opportunity to come together and help orient incoming students as they embark on a pathway toward a degree.
Although celebratory in nature, this day is also designed to ensure CSULB students acquire the higher education they need to compete in a highly skilled workforce, and develop innovative solutions to the region’s most pressing social and economic challenges.
