Moving into your first residence hall can be daunting: Did you pack everything? Will your roommate be cool? How do you do laundry again?

Luckily, the Arizona State University Class of '22 had a bunch of helping hands along the way.  

This year, ASU welcomed about 15,000 first-year and upper-division students into residence halls across multiple campus locations. Hundreds of volunteers were on hand to ensure a stress-free moving day for all.
