AS OVER 38,000 STUDENTS RETURN, EXPECT HIGHER TRAFFIC AROUND UA CAMPUS

Denny Chimes University Of Alabama

As thousands of students begin to return for the fall semester, traffic around the UA campus is going to get worse in the coming weeks.

Move-in has started at some dorms around the university. Panhellenic activities are also starting up, which always brings an influx of students walking and driving around.

“Very organized, very efficient and very well thought out and very well planned,” Randy Blessing, a UA parent, said.

Some new students and their parents moving in at Presidental Village said it’s been a smooth process.

“I’m amazed at how fast-paced it is,” Olivia Blessing, a UA freshman, said. “Like, I came here, I got my keys and I was in my dorm. I’ve met some of my roommates, they already had all of my stuff up there before I was up there, so it was very fast-paced.”

The first day of classes at UA is Wednesday, August 21. Fall enrollment is 38,392.
