It was a different kind of college move-in for freshmen like Mehul Suri EAS’24, seen above rolling his belongings into Lauder College House with his father, Ajit Suri, on January 14. Because the pandemic shut down college housing for the fall semester, most of Penn’s first-year students didn’t make their first trips to campus until this winter. And since safety precautions limited students to only single bedrooms, some were spread out in dorms typically occupied by upperclassmen. No matter where on campus they landed, freshmen quickly needed to get comfortable in their new rooms—since that’s likely where they’ve been taking their (still mostly virtual) classes for the spring semester.
