ALBANY, N.Y. (August 30, 2006)

Moving-In Day for UAlbany freshmen at State Quad (uptown campus).

Saturday, September 2, 2006, 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.

University at Albany Provost and Executive Vice President Susan Herbst will be joined by senior administrators and other UAlbany faculty and staff in welcoming incoming freshmen and returning students back to campus for the fall 2006 semester.

Provost Herbst will be available to answer questions on new developments at the University, and Michael Hoffman, the President/Owner of Turf Hotels will present the provost with a donation to the Inaugural Scholarship Fund.

State Quad, the dormitory complex on the northeast side of the Academic Podium, east of Collins Circle, on the uptown campus, 1400 Washington Avenue, Albany. Parking is available on Collins Circle.

On his third day in office, past UAlbany President Kermit L. Hall established the Inaugural Scholarship Fund to assure that qualified undergraduates have the means to attend UAlbany. He jumpstarted the Fund with $100,000 that the campus could have spent on a presidential inauguration, and he and his wife, Phyllis, pledged $10,000. The fund today stands at nearly $3 million.


The University at Albany's broad mission of excellence in undergraduate and graduate education, research and public service engages more than 17,000 diverse students in 10 schools and colleges.
