Moving Day, 2014

(Yale photos)
Members of the Yale Class of 2018, just a few months after gleefully opening up their acceptance e-mails, moved onto Old Campus, Siliman College and Timothy Dwight College Aug. 22, marking the opening days of the 2014-15 school year in New Haven.

At Yale today, freshmen and their parents and siblings get lots of help lifting trunks and equipment several flights of stairs.  Upper-class volunteers ("Pierson Movers," "Berkeley Brawn," "Say What? Saybrook," etc.) greet first-year students as soon as their vans roll up to Phelps Gate.  Volunteers get them tucked into their new rooms and suites in a matter of minutes.  More than 20 of the new students hail from Westchester.

Yale president Peter Salovey '86 Ph.d. joined the fun, too, not necessarily hauling boxes up to the fifth floor of Lawrance Hall, but by inviting students from all classes to share a photo selfie with him (above).  New Yale College dean Jonathan Hollaway '95 Ph.d. accompanied him, making the rounds among freshmen and upper-class movers.
