IU Football Helps Incoming Freshmen on Move-in Day
Aug. 25, 2010
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Approximately 7,000 incoming freshmen moved into the dorms on the Bloomington campus of Indiana University on Wednesday, and the Indiana football program was out en masse to help. Six groups of Hoosier players helped freshmen move into Briscoe, Foster and McNutt.
The Hoosiers helped carry in items and helped move furniture in dorm rooms. They also met with the freshmen and encouraged them to come out and support the team this fall. The team was joined by head coach Bill Lynch and the rest of the IU coaching staff.
Indiana opens the 2010 season against Towson on Thursday, Sept. 2, at 7:30 p.m. Season tickets are currently on sale and can be purchased by calling 866-IUSPORTS. Students can also add season tickets to their Bursar account during class registration.
IU had the third-largest one-year percentage increase in average attendance nationally in 2009, increasing by 10,051 to 41,833. It marked the Hoosiers' largest home attendance since 1992 (44,074) and the first time they exceeded 40,000 since the same year.
Indiana also sold out an expanded student section twice, against Ohio State (11,000 seats) and again vs. Purdue (15,200 seats). The Purdue total was the fourth-largest student section in Memorial Stadium history and the largest since 1989.
