Saint Norbert College Preps for Packers

DE PERE, Wis. (AP) -- Dorm rooms at St. Norbert College in De Pere will be getting a makeover on Thursday with the arrival of 100 custom-made beds for the Green Bay Packers when they move in next week.

St. Norbert has hosted the Packers for 53 years, and school officials say it's the longest relationship between a pro football team and a college in the NFL.

The college doesn't host any on-field activities, but players receive all room and board, including meals and transportation to the team facility a little over three miles away.

The Packers start moving in July 30 and leave in the middle of August.
