The residence department is one of many whose staff are putting in extra hours to prepare for the start of fall semester. (Pictured above l-r) Ann Waigand and Madison Mueller, graduate students and community advisers at Frederiksen Court, sort and package about 2,700 keys to the student neighborhood's 640+ apartments. The key packages will be distributed at Lied Recreation Athletic Facility, where all students living in campus housing will be tested for COVID-19 to begin this year's move-in process. Students living on campus this summer will be tested July 31.
With the goal of keeping students, their family members and staff as physically distanced as possible, move-in is by appointment and spread over two weeks, Aug. 3-16. Destination Iowa State for first-time Iowa State students, which began virtually in early July, continues on campus Aug. 13-15.
