Move-In Day 1995

Many of the new Wright State freshmen moving in today will have been born about 1995. Therefore, we have decided to take a Throwback Thursday look at Move-In Day 1995, as told by the WSU Guardian student newspaper.

Note the article on page 4 that this was the “largest ever” move-in day with 2,200 on-campus residents. (We currently have over 3,000 on-campus residents, according to the Office of Residence Services.)

Bonus: Here are some photographs from that same year’s Fall Fest, which was held September 15, 1995.  You can enjoy Fall Fest this year on August 29, 2014. Click on the image thumbnail to enlarge it:

Extra bonus: computer advertisement from page 4 (note the “4 Meg Ram” – that’s 4 megabytes, not 4 gigabytes!):
