University of Arkansas - Fort Smith students will move into campus housing 9 a.m.-noon Aug. 16, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Aug. 17, and 9 a.m.-noon Aug. 18, with help from the UAFS campus community.


Cub Camp participants will move in Aug. 16, while students residing in Sebastian Commons will move in Aug. 17-18, and Lion’s Den residents Aug. 18.


Members of the Chancellor’s Move-In Crew will help with coordinating traffic, unloading cars and transporting belongings to student housing. UAFS employees will also volunteer to assist students moving in.


Beth Eppinger, director of housing and residential life at UAFS, said fall move-in days are “a major campus event.”


“The atmosphere at move-in can be similar to a tailgate because there is loud music, pop-up tents, crowded parking lots, free water and hot dogs, new people to meet, and fun,” she said. “From the first day of their collegiate career, we want students to know that UAFS cares about them, and we want to make them feel the Lion pride emanating from the 200-plus volunteers.”
