Tweeting Their Way to College

Twitter updates offer real-time glimpse of Move-In Day festivities

September 13, 2010 | by Matt Paolelli

The Twitterverse was buzzing Tuesday as students returned to the Evanston campus and the Class of 2014 moved into their dorms. Tweets from parents, freshmen, upperclassmen and others offered a real-time glimpse from the chaotic front lines of navigating construction on Sheridan Road, hauling refrigerators into dorm rooms and tearful parental goodbyes. Follow NorthwesternU on Twitter for more updates.
