 Members of the Student Affairs team were up bright and early to help welcome students and families to campus.

Resident advisors (RAs), like senior Vani Ganesh, serve as mentors and leaders within Residential Life facilities. Move-in is one of the first chances new Tigers have to meet their RAs.

Moving in thousands of students takes many hands. This semester, more than 1,200 volunteers signed up to help with everything from traffic control to moving boxes to providing directions and more.

University of Missouri President Mun Choi greeted incoming students and welcomed them to campus.

“Move-in is a tremendous opportunity to meet and welcome each other,” Choi said.

Volunteers filled “speed carts” — cardboard boxes on rollers — to efficiently shuttle students’ belongings from streetside to residence hall.

Thanks to volunteers, many families were unpacking in their students’ rooms in less than 20 minutes.

Stackable plastic bins and shelving were the order of the day as new Tigers from every U.S. state and more than 50 countries moved to campus.

Maddie LaFlamme and roommate Avani Bichkar settled into their new home in Defoe-Graham. LaFlamme is a biological sciences major and said she’s looking forward to undergraduate research and spending time in Mizzou’s science buildings.

After students unloaded their cars, they stopped by the one-stop shop in the MU Student Center.

The one-stop shop provided a centralized location for students to get their ID cards, set up their tech and meet with different groups from across campus.

Groups at the one-stop shop included Student Health and Well-Being, Campus Dining Services, the Career Center, Residential Life and more.

Welcome Wagons drove through campus, picking up students and family members and taking them to their destination.

Student groups found creative ways to welcome our newest Tigers.

Avery Adams, a health science major from St. Louis, posed for a picture with her parents. "One of the things I'm most excited for at Mizzou is all the sporting events," she said. "I can't wait to cheer for the team — at home and away. Go Tigers!"
