The University Record, September 11, 2000


The University Record welcomes letters from members of the University community. Those on topics of broad University interest will be given preference for publication. Letters should be no more than 500 words in length and must be signed. The editorial staff reserves the right to reject any letter and to edit and/or condense letters for publication. The editorial staff also may limit the number of weeks letters may be published on an issue, and the number of times any one person’s viewpoint on a single issue will be published. Letters may appear in small type. Organizations submitting material must include the name and address of an appropriate officer. Letters must be received by noon Wednesday to receive consideration for publication in the next issue.

Move-in, Welcome Week staff praised

I am writing to praise the hundreds of staff in Housing, Student Affairs and other campus units who worked to plan Move-In and Welcome Week activities. I have witnessed the move-in process at other universities, but I have never seen an effort on the scale of the one put forth by this institution. You have really outdone yourselves in working to make students and their families feel welcome, and in putting together dozens of fun and inviting activities. I am impressed anew every year at this time.
