Move-in Day Launches USA’s Week of Welcome…and Beyond
Posted on August 18, 2018
For the third time in seven years, a brand new residence hall is welcoming incoming freshman students to the University of South Alabama.
Today was Move-in Day at South, a day where USA faculty, staff and current students unloaded vehicles and did the heavy lifting to move 1,332 freshmen into their new campus homes.
The newest of the new homes is named Camellia Hall, with 363 brand new Jaguars checking in today. The volunteer movers showed up at 8 o’clock this morning and worked into the afternoon to relocate the Class of 2022 into the University’s 32 residence halls.
“Diverse and extensive participation in Move-In Day is a part of what makes USA so special. It demonstrates the passion and pride that faculty, staff, students and administrators have for South’s campus community,” said Dr. Nicole Carr, co-chair of USA’s Week of Welcome festivities.
Move-in Day at South kicks off the University’s “Week of Welcome… and Beyond,” two weeks of special events to show students where they belong at USA. Events such as First Night, Convocation, Get-on-Board Day and the Block Party highlight South’s campus community and get students connected with the people and places that will be a big part of their lives at South Alabama.
“These two weeks of fun events offer all students the time and space to connect with academic interests, student organizations and all the wide ranging opportunities that come with being part of the Jag family,” Carr said.

In all, some 2,400 students live on-campus at South, as returning residential students moved in earlier this week. The first day of fall semester classes is Tuesday, Aug. 21.
