ST. THOMAS — New student move-in day on Tuesday at the University of the Virgin Islands’ St. Thomas campus felt a little different this year for Torhera Durand.

“I feel like the environment and the ambiance is a lot more welcoming,” said Durand, a UVI senior and vice president of the Student Government Association. “And, it’s a lot more organized in the way in which they’re helping students get to their rooms and having everything set up beforehand.”
