I remember my own experience moving into the dorms at Arizona State University as a freshman on a hot August day nine years ago. It was just me and my mom, and I was lucky enough to be assigned to the third floor — the third floor in an older building with no elevator. We carried my belongings up three flights of stairs, making several trips. There were a few student leaders wandering around, offering their services, but for the most part we did it all on our own. In short, it was nothing like Move-In at GCU.
