Move-In Day

College move-in day is one of those days you’ll probably remember for years to come. It marks the beginning of a new phase in your kid’s life, and can be exciting, emotional and stressful for everyone involved. As parents, you may not know where you fit in or what your role should be.

So we thought it made sense to ask college students to reflect on their move-in day experiences and share their perspective.

We asked “What was the most helpful thing your parents did for you on move-in day?” and “What was not so helpful?”

Here’s what they had to say:



Many thanks to these students for sharing their experiences with us and special thanks to our cinematographer Chloe Shipko, Wesleyan Class of 2014.
