Moving up: Record numbers of students to live on campus

With a large freshman class and the inclusion of Aggie Village apartments, a record number of students are now living on campus at Colorado State University. For the 2016-17 academic year, an anticipated 7,850 students will be living on campus according to Tonie Miyamoto, director of communications and sustainability in Housing and Dining.

Miyamoto said 2,000 students moved in on Wednesday, the largest early-arrival day ever.


Miyamoto said that while early move-in days occurred in the past years, the large number could be attributed to students moving into living-learning communities such as Key Communities.

For Amanda McDaniel, senior psychology major and ram welcome leader, helping freshmen move has been a lot easier due the balanced influx of people between the two days.

“Actually, it’s not as hectic as it was last year,” McDaniel said. “Last year I think they had everyone moving in on the same day, and this year they kind of split it up. So it’s actually run pretty well. It has been a lot less stressful.”

About 4,000 residents moved to campus on Thursday. A total of 973 upper-classmen students will live in the new Aggie Village Apartments.

Kyle Howe, a freshman chemical engineering and music performance major said that he isn’t surprised by the number.

“I feel like it is pretty typical,” Howe said. “Even at our high school, the freshman class was getting larger and larger.”
