Recent Sightings Recent sightings: Move-in day

August 31, 2015

The controlled chaos of move-in day has had campus buzzing since last week as students move the things they can’t live without into their new residence hall rooms. Thousands of new and returning students have been pushing, pulling and clutching their belongings as they prepare to make UW–Madison their address for the next year. University Communications photographer Bryce Richter would have been happy to haul a box or two if his hands weren’t already full with camera gear.

Cart blanche: Anything goes if it’ll save another trip to the car — even a precariously balanced laundry cart.
