Alumni Roll Out the Cardinal Carpet

For most of us, Friday, August 27 was just another hot summer day, but for a handful of alumni it was a time to extend a warm Muhlenberg welcome to the newest members of our community. As members of the Class of 2008 waited their turn to move into their dorms, alumni from the Lehigh Valley, Philadelphia and southern New Jersey greeted them with a smile and cup of coffee. Said one mother of her daughter’s move-in day experience, “What could have been an extremely stressful situation became an event of memories for my daughter’s college experience… This truly was an excellent start to our Muhlenberg adventure.”

Many thanks to the alumni volunteers who helped with Move-In Day 2004!
