Move-in day is an important milestone for beginning college students, their families, and the institution. In many respects, it sets the tone for what will follow over the next few months. If students who are new to campus have a positive, supportive experience when they arrive on campus, the probability that they will ultimately continue with their academic pursuits in significantly increased. If, on the other hand, things do not go smoothly and their first day on campus is unpleasant or frustrating, then the likelihood is that they will not persist.
