Move-in '99

Johns Hopkins Gazette Online Edition

They came from 44 states and 23 countries, 1,014 freshmen descending on the Homewood campus on Saturday, Sept. 4, laden down with suitcases, computers, sound systems and more. But with more than 500 upperclassmen on hand to help with the hoisting, the class of 2003 was soon moved in and ready to take on five days of orientation.

Activities planned by the Orientation '99 committee included a luau, dinner with President Brody, Latin Palace Club Nite, a movie on the quad, Playfair, an a cappella concert, Service Day and, oh yes, departmental meetings and faculty advising. Classes began on Thursday, Sept. 9.
