McRobbie Greets Incoming IU Freshmen

The IU president joked and talked with freshman families as they helped their children move in to the dorms.

Indiana University president Michael McRobbie spent part of this morning meeting students moving into IU dorms. Amid piles of students’ personal belongings stacked outside the entrance to Briscoe Hall, McRobbie shared stories with the parents who were helping their children make the transition to college life. Indianapolis resident Andi Bernstein was sending her youngest child off to college, and told McRobbie that staff had made the decision to come to IU an easy one.

When Bernstein asked McRobbie about his accent, the new IU president and Australian native joked that he was from southern Indiana. IU police Captain Jerry Minger says 75 uniformed officers are on duty to help facilitate the move of thousands of students into IU residence halls.
