Illinois State students moving out of dorms, Congressman Rodney Davis moves out twins
by: Austin Schick
It might only be May, but students at Illinois State University are already moving out of their dorms due to COVID-19.
On Friday, parents of Illinois State students were helping move their kids out of the dorms and back home. As we reported earlier, the university is transitioning to all online classes for the rest of the semester.
Now many students are returning to campus to move their belongings out of their dorm rooms and back home to mom and dad.
“I moved the kids in in the heat of summer in August my twins were freshmen coming into the well known Waterson moving day. I never thought I have to move out in March, but here we are at a time that’s not been seen in our nation’s history and glad to get here and get this stuff out but I’m excited to see what the next few months bring to, to see when we can beat this thing,” said Congressman, Rodney Davis.
Congressman Rodney Davis was on campus to move his 19-year-old twins out of their dorm rooms. Congressman Davis told WMBD that he believes the school made the right decision in unprecedented times.
“They’ve been home for a couple weeks. They had spring break and then spring break got extended, then we got the notice to come move them out. It’s a good move by our colleges–they had to make these decisions, it’s not one I know President Dietz wanted to make,” Davis said.Keep reading at CIProud.com.
