Xavier, NKU freshmen moving in

EVANSTON, OH (FOX19) -

Friday is move-in day for freshmen at Xavier University and Northern Kentucky University.

Over 1,100 new students at Xavier will move into the dorms Friday. The Xavier Move Crew, in bright neon T-shirts, will assist the new students as they move in.

The Move Crew of more than 200 upper class students, ROTC, faculty, staff and alumni volunteers welcomes new students as their cars approach their residence halls. The volunteers unload the cars and carry their belongings up to their rooms.

As of mid-August, 1,137 students make up the Class of 2015 out of a total 9,306 students who applied for admission at Xavier. Classes begin at 4:00 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 22, and the first full day of classes is on Tuesday, Aug. 23.

About 90 percent of this year's freshmen are living on campus, among the more than 2,330 undergraduates who are living in campus housing this year. With the opening of the new residence hall for 535 students, Xavier now has five residence halls and five apartment buildings with 2,380 beds.

The Class of 2015 is 46 percent men and 54 percent women, continuing a trend of more women attending college in the U.S. than men. Forty-eight percent of students are from outside Ohio and represent 45 states and 10 countries; 18 percent are students of color; and 22 percent are the first in their families to attend college.

At Northern Kentucky University, over 1,800 residential students are moving in Friday, kicking off "Welcome Week."

Friday's activities include a welcome back picnic, a new student and parent convocation, a Taste of Northern Kentucky Convocation Dinner and a Salsa Magic/Street Dance.

Returning students will move in beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 20. Classes begin on Monday, Aug. 22.
