DENTON (UNT), Texas -- University of North Texas students hauling their boxes of belongings into residence halls this fall will have help from hundreds of volunteers, including UNT faculty and staff members.

Mean Green Move-In began as Sunday Fun Day more than 15 years ago. Volunteers will help with everything from checking students into their rooms to carrying boxes into the residence halls from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug. 17 (Sunday). About 5,800 students are expected to live in UNT's 14 residence halls this semester, and about 85 percent are expected to move in by the end of the first full day of the halls being open.

"We want to give our students a friendly and warm welcome as they settle into their home away from home," says Carmen Garza, UNT's residence life coordinator.

A cookout with music will be ongoing from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Crumley Park near Crumley Hall, 1621 W. Highland St. Food will be available in the cafeterias at West, Bruce and Victory halls.
