The Stephens Branch Library hosted a stuffed-animal sleepover on Saturday, Sept. 19. Kids brought their parents and stuffed animals for storytime and to spend the night at the library. Each child received a certificate and photo of their stuffed animal sleeping over.
It was move-in day Saturday, an annual UC Davis ritual in which thousands of freshmen and returning students descended on the residence halls to kick off the 2015-16 school year.
While the newcomers and their families get the lay of the land, ably assisted by student volunteers, returning Aggies have the opportunity to reconnect and get prepped for the return of classes.
