Students move into UM-Flint

Posted: Updated:
FLINT, MI (WNEM) -


"I'm really excited. It's nice being home, but I'm happy to be back," said sophomore Charlea Mosser. 

It was move in day for students at University of Michigan-Flint. About 400 students moved into on-campus housing. Freshman and Sophomores hauled their boxes and laptops into First Street Residence Hall, and upperclassmen moved to Riverfront. This new housing option was just acquired by the university on April 1, 2016. It was given to the campus by Uptown Reinvestment Corporation, making it the largest single gift ever given to UM-Flint

 Upperclassmen helped the new students move into their new homes. 

"I've done this every year since moving in myself. You get to meet the incoming freshmen, and catch up with people you haven't seen all summer. I's a nice way to get your volunteer hours," said volunteer Levi Hurley.

Many students are moving to Flint for the first time, right in the midst of the Water Crisis. 


"In the community, you see all the water stuff, but it's not all you see here," said Mosser, "People come together in the community and go to school here. I see how it affects them directly, but they worry about more than that."
