  1. Move-in day easier in Dunker’s era. My friends and I caught on quickly. Attend move-in day every year and help the coeds move-in. In those days, you could tell a person’s landline 📞 by their room number.

  2. I remember my DU move-in day (back in early-to-mid Pleistocene) like it was yesterday. There were no helpers around to help us on move-in day in the rain…

    That said, I had never even visited the DU campus before that move-in day and knew nobody. My parents just put me on an airplane with just a duffel bag and a typewriter…Best years of my young life!
