New students feel 'sense of community' at McDaniel move-in day

People wearing yellow shirts with "MOVE IN CREW" printed across the back buzzed around campus Wednesday, hauling boxes, bags and bedspreads.

Incoming freshmen, with a mix of excitement and nerves clear across their faces, helped direct the flow of items. Students picked up their keys, and a seemingly never-ending line of cars littered the campus.

It was another move-in day at McDaniel College.

The college, which is set to start classes Monday, Aug. 29, continued its tradition of a warm welcome with a mass of volunteers spending the morning helping the new students move into their dorms.

Everyone from ROTC students to McDaniel President Roger Casey came out to lend a hand Wednesday in an event that has become something of a well-oiled machine.

"Every year it gets smoother and smoother," Casey said.

It was a breeze for freshman Ravi Patel.

"It made the whole process easier," he said, of all of the help he got.
