Approximately 300 Shenandoah University faculty, staff and students joined forces on Tuesday, August 20, to help first-year students move into their dorms as part of the school’s annual Move-In Day.
Volunteers carried boxes, refrigerators and TVs into dorms to assist new students and their families during their first day on campus.
