Students making the big move from home

Students at Southeastern Louisiana University moved into their on-campus residences Aug. 18 in preparation for the fall 2013 semester.

“Move-In Mane-ia” began early that morning as students checked into their rooms and learned about meal plans, parking, student activities and more.

The university’s residence halls are at full capacity with 2,390 students, said Director of Housing Kay Maurin.

Cardinal Newman Hall underwent extensive renovations over the past several months.
