ASHEVILLE, N.C. – Each year the UNC Asheville Athletics Department and its student-athletes contribute many hours to the community and the school with its community service work.


Friday started a new year with move-in day for the Class of 2017 at UNC Asheville. And the Athletic Department’s coaches and student-athletes were ready to lend a helping day.


The close to 600 freshmen moving in on Friday got a chance to meet many of the athletic department’s coaches, staff members and student-athletes up close. The Bulldogs helped move the freshmen into their dorms by unloading cars and carrying suitcases, books, clothes and small refrigerators into the Class of 2017’s new rooms.
