CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. --- The Chattanooga Mocs teamed up to help the UTC Class of 2016 freshmen move into their dorms Thursday morning. It was truly a team effort with football, volleyball and wrestling trolling the parking lots and sidewalks around Boling and Johnson-Obear Buildings to aid their new comrades.
There was an out-pouring of support campus-wide for 2012 Operation Move-In. Campus organizations, sororities, etc., were there to lend a helping hand. The Mocs student-athletes were there to help carry items as well as hand out a few of their own.
Student-athletes were quick to grab a box, refrigerator, rack of clothes and take direction from students and parents happy to receive the help. They also took time to engage their new classmates passing out schedule cards for fall sports and talk with students and parents discussing the team and outlook toward their respective seasons.
Today was just the first day and was focused on freshmen move-in. Saturday is the date when upperclassmen are returning to campus.
