EASTON, Pa. - On Thursday morning, Lafayette student-athletes took part in the 10th annual Freshman Move-In Day. Team members from the fall varsity sports as well as a few spring sports joined with several of the college's fraternities and sororities to assist in moving in the Class of 2013.
Thursday marked the 10th consecutive year that student-athletes volunteered to help incoming freshmen bring their belongings into their new dorm rooms. The program began in August of 1999 with the Lafayette football team and the College's Office of Student Residence and has been an annual tradition since.
Members of the football, field hockey, men's and women's soccer, cross country and volleyball teams all took two-hour shifts. Several softball and women's lacrosse players also lent a hand. The student-athletes were found throughout campus unloading cars and carrying bags and boxes up flights of stairs helping ease the stress for parents dropping freshmen off.
The Class of 2013 has a weekend full of orientation activities before classes begin for all students on Aug. 31.
