Students and parents were greeted by some beautiful weather and an army of Curb Bird volunteers during Illinois State’s first big move-in day Wednesday, August 12.

Throughout the week, around 6,100 students will move into Illinois State’s residence halls and apartments. More than 350 students and staff are serving as move-in volunteers.

Watch our video recap above to see Wednesday’s move-in action. You can follow along all week by using the official hashtag #RedbirdMoveIn.
