With help of president, UNI students begin moving back into dorms
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -
University of Northern Iowa Students began moving into their residence halls on campus Thursday afternoon.
Some students received some help from UNI President William Ruud. Ruud and his wife spent part of the day helping students with the heavy lifting.
"I think students need to know we care about their success," Ruud said. "One of the ways we can do it is come out and help them -- I mean, roll up your sleeves. Part of leadership is not telling people what to do -- it's helping people get to their goal."
In addition, a few junior and senior students were able to move into the new residence hall, Panther Village 3000. The new building can house up to 4,000 students.
Students are excited to move into this new building.
"It's a gorgeous building," said Lizzie Moreno, a UNI student. "This one is only about a year old, so there's a lot of exploring to be done, and I think that it does the campus justice. It's a beautiful campus."
