The University of California, Santa Barbara's six on-campus residence halls will resemble a massive ant colony as students unload their belongings into their new homes. About 2,870 new and returning students are expected to settle into the residence halls on "Move-in Day," Sunday, Sept. 26, beginning at 9a.m.

Among the activities planned to orient new students before classes begin on Thursday, Sept. 30, are tours of UCSB/Isla Vista on bikes and rollerblades. Workshop topics include using e-mail and other computer lab tools, campus safety, laundry basics, living with roommates, studying strategies, and writing skills. Chancellor Henry Yang will welcome new students at a reception and ice cream social on the Lagoon Lawn on Wednesday, Sept. 29, from 12:30 p.m. to 2p.m.UCSB received more than 26,963 freshman applications for fall quarter 1999---affirming the campus' stature as a university of choice among high-achieving college applicants. Approximately 3,775 incoming freshmen are expected this fall.
