Nearly a month after our counterparts at other universities, students at the University of Chicago are moving in, ready to start Fall Quarter. For many of us, we've been anticipating this day for what felt like an eternity. It's a chaotic process, going from zero to one hundred nearly instantaneously. From the stress of move in, trying to get all of your stuff for classes together, to the actual classes themselves, it's a very overwhelming time. There are so many things to do and so little time. I know my thoughts were running crazy once I got back to campus.
