Move-in day is a time filled with making new friends and bittersweet goodbyes. For first-year students, it's also the start of their lives away from home. On Saturday (Aug. 22), as students unpacked, New Wave took a video camera into a residence hall to ask one question: What's the one item you couldn't leave home without? Watch the video.
In this video produced by Alicia Duplessis Jasmin, first-year students pause as they move into uptown
campus residence halls to talk about that favorite stuffed animal, baseball glove, iPod and yes, blankie,
that they were sure to pack.
