Photos: Tall Order – Sneden Hall Readied for First Day of Fall Semester

Two 53-ft. semis pulled up next to Sneden Hall Tuesday morning packed to the gills. Seen here are movers unloading, rolling and stacking boxes of chairs – 253 boxes in this particular pile – from the first truck, while the second one waits in the wings. And that’s just the chairs; Wednesday the tables arrive! And there will be even more trucks daily…but everything will be ready when students arrive August 30.
