Move-In Edition

Before Quad Day hits, and before classes start, students are moving in to their apartments and residence halls.

Deadline: Aug. 8
Publication date: Aug. 21

Approximately 8,000 copies are distributed to students who are moving in and preparing for the year ahead. What are they doing after they finish moving in? They are decorating their living spaces, stocking their refrigerators, exploring the campus area and looking for things to do before classes start.

The edition has four sections: living, food, technology and shopping. Make sure students know about you!
