Welcome Freshmen: WRCT presents Move-In 2011

The start of the 2011-2012 academic year is right around the corner, which means that droves of new students from around the country and the world will soon be moving in at Carnegie Mellon University. I mean, who doesn’t love driving 8 hours in a car with your extended family and unloading boxes all day?

Well, that’s why WRCT has partnered with CMU’s Housing and Dining Services to bring our brand-new members of the campus community a special broadcast. We’ll be bringing up-to-the-minute information on orientation, traffic, and yes, a bit of music this Sunday, August 21st. WRCT will be broadcasting live from the Morewood Gardens courtyard, next to the check-in tents — stop by to say hello to our staff and pick up a free bumper sticker!

Live coverage begins at 8am Sunday morning on 88.3 MHz, online at www.wrct.org, and will continue until 2:30pm. Regularly-scheduled programming will be pre-empted during this broadcast.

If you don’t have a radio with you, satellite broadcasts will be available on campus in the following locations:

  • Wiegand Gym, University Center
  • Rangos Ballroom, University Center
  • Donner House
  • The Residence on Fifth

Oh, and on behalf of all of us at WRCT: Welcome, class of 2015! Sure, you’re making us feel old now, but we’ll get over it. Just remember, you guys owe us some hoverboards in four years. You probably don’t even get that reference, do you. Fine, whatever.
