St. Mary’s City, Md. – Yesterday was a day of mixed emotions for parents as they dropped off their sons and daughters for the first time on the campus of St. Mary’s College of Maryland. However, members of the Seahawk fall varsity sport teams were on hand to ease some of the burden by helping at New Student Move-In Thursday.
Between the hours of 9:00 am and 3:00 pm, student-athletes from the men’s and women’s cross country, field hockey, men’s and women’s soccer, and volleyball teams assisted the efforts of the Office of Residence Life staff by supplying friendly smiles and helping hands in an effort to make the transition to campus life a smooth one for the first-year students.
The 2010-11 marks the fourth year that the St. Mary’s fall athletes have aided in New Student Move-In. The teams helped with move-in at the Caroline, Dorchester, Prince George's, and Queen Anne's residence halls.
The Seahawks help the new students in other ways as well as Chelsea Bradcovich (women’s tennis), Kristin Hay (women’s cross country) and Katie Lackler (women’s tennis) are serving as Resident Assistants this year while several others are serving as Orientation Leaders.
