DENTON – Texas Woman’s University will welcome a record number of on-campus residents when the university opens its residence halls on Wednesday, Aug. 24.

“Based on our housing applications, we expect to house a record number of our students on campus this year,” said Dr. Richard Nicholas, TWU vice president for student life. “Although we are over capacity with our more than 1,500 beds full, we will work to provide housing to any TWU student who wishes to live on campus.”

According to Assistant Housing Director Kenny Mauk, nearly 50 TWU faculty, staff, alumni and others will help the students move into the residence halls during Pioneer Welcome day on Wednesday.

“In addition to providing labor, our staff and volunteers will greet and welcome the students and answer any questions they may have.” Mauk said. “Refreshments will also be provided.”

TWU’s four residence halls consists of two multi-storied towers – John A. Guinn and Stark halls – the traditional Jones Hall and the new Lowry Woods Community. Lowry Woods is TWU’s first new residence hall in more than 35 years and will house single students and students with families in apartment-style units.

After move-in, freshmen and new TWU students are automatically registered for TWU’s Pioneer Camp, a four-day introduction to TWU that consists of recreational activities, volunteer opportunities, informational sessions and social gatherings. Pioneer Camp is scheduled Aug. 24 - 28.

Classes for TWU’s fall 2005 semester begin on Monday, Aug. 29. Official TWU enrollment numbers, including the number of freshmen and transfer students, will be available after the twelfth class day in mid September.

For fall 2004, TWU experienced an all-time enrollment record of 10,737 students, the fifth consecutive semester of double-digit enrollment growth at TWU.
