Fireside Chat

President LaForge welcomes students returning to campus as everyone prepares for the annual Move-In Day.

This year marks the 90th anniversary for Delta State welcoming students to the campus, which is always an exciting time for the university. Classes begin in one week, and the annual Move-In Day will take place this Sunday from 1-5 p.m.

“Move-In Day is always a fun way for faculty, staff and Delta State supporters to come together and help students move into the residence halls. In many ways, it’s a ceremonial kickoff to the new academic year.”

Along with staff, Delta State’s Student Government Association, orientation leaders, student organizations, local churches, student-athletes, and faculty will be on hand to greet students and their families and to assist them with moving their belongings into the residence halls.

Also, a number of campus offices will be open for service and support, including Admissions, Barnes and Noble Bookstore, Financial Aid, Career Services, Housing and Residence Life, Registrars’ Office, Student Business Services and University Police.

Jeanna Wilkes, the new director of Student Life, shares more information about the upcoming Move-In Day.

Those interested in volunteering for Move-In Day should contact Jeanna at 662-846-4666 or

Volunteers are asked to wear a green shirt for identity purposes. Nametags will also be provided to all volunteers.

For anyone looking to further your education at a university that rolls out the green carpet for its students like we do during Move-In Day, it’s not too late to enroll. Just contact our admissions office at 662-846-4020, and they will be glad to assist you.
