Prince George, B.C.-   With the help of  members of the UNBC Timberwolves teams,  and the Prince George Spruce Kings, students at UNBC who  will be staying on campus  this semester,  are moving into the  UNBC residences.

The residences are at capacity  this year,  which is good news says UNBC President Daniel Weeks,  as the university doesn’t receive any funding to  operate  those facilities.

Greg Daniels  is one of the students moving in today.  From Canim Lake, he is  attending UNBC  to  take a forestry program “I am excited to meet new people,  have new experiences.”  unbc2

The University  residences  have capacity for  just under 540 students.

The day  provided students with a free lunch, and this evening  there is a special residence Community Dinner.

“This is a great day for a move in” says UNBC President  Daniel Weeks, “The weather is certainly cooperating”.   With the sun shining and moderate temperatures   it’s a  big improvement over some past Move In days when  it’s  been either extremely hot,  or  cold with rain.



These students are lucky to be going to university up here, students going to university in Vancouver / Lower Mainland not so much.
