  • Movers help with the heavy lifting as Boston college students return

    The Boston Globe - 09/01/2012

    Local colleges are lending a hand — along with carts and dollies — so move-in day goes smoothly.

    For college students and their families, move-in day is an emotional rite of passage, and usually a physically draining one as well. But as students return to the Boston area for the fall term, schools are lending a hand — along with carts and dollies — to make the stressful experience more manageable and get the school year off to a smooth start.

    Northeastern University and Fisher College in the Back Bay even provide private movers and maintenance workers to transport student belongings to the dorm.
