Informational pamphlets, long lines and new and returning students with parents made up the chaotic spectacle that crowded campus housing grounds Saturday, Aug. 24.
For CSUN freshman Alex Salazar, 17, communications major, moving into CSUN housing for the first time was a memorable experience, even as his mother reluctantly helped him move into his new home away from home.
“Independence is the thing I’m most excited about,” Salazar said.
Salazar, a San Diego native, shared his eagerness and excitement to be involved in extracurricular activities from sports to speech and debate.
This semester, roughly 4,000 CSUN freshmen, transfer students, and returning students, moved into their dorms.
In order to make this move-in process smoother, the Residence Hall Association provided workers and dollies to assist with transporting large boxes and belongings from the parking lots to dorms.
Jessica Contreras, 19, a communications major, is returning to the dorms for her second year. Although Contreras quickly said that her current room seemed a lot smaller to her than last year, she is still excited to consider new options of décor for her dorm room.
