Students move in at UWMC

WAUSAU (WAOW) -

They started early and moved everything from refrigerators to storage containers.

Thursday's unusually warm temperatures didn't slow down freshmen students at UWMC.

Students said the day was steamy, gorgeous and enjoyable.

For these students, it was about starting fresh and getting settled in their new home.

"I actually moved everything in, just to have to sort everything out," said Michael Hacimovich.

Hacimovich is a chemistry major from Park Falls.

To beat the heat, he said he hoped a temporary fix would keep his dorm room cool.

"I've got a fan we bought at Dollar General this morning, hopefully that works out," said Hacimovich.

With the heat of the day, he said he planned on spending less time in the dorms, enjoying the day outside.

"Meet a bunch of people, learn the city, where everything is," said Hacimovich.

Thursday was an early start for many, as move-in day started at 8 a.m.

"Left at eight o'clock, got here about ten," said Hacimovich.

It was so hot, the school gave students a chance to meet each other and stay hydrated.

"We have water stations set up throughout the hall," said Deanna Corry.

Parents, like John Hacimovich, a student at UWMC 35 years ago, got the chance to reflect on their own move-in days.

"It's much warmer today than when I moved in," said Hacimovich.

Which gave them the chance to pass on their stories and the tradition of learning.

"I hope that he is probably a little more well-behaved than I was," said Hacimovich.

As this year's freshmen students battled the heat and got prepared for their next challenge: college.
