Steve Farias, a doctoral student in speech communication from California, left, and Mike Selck, a senior from Kansas City, Mo. studying speech communication, help Benny Lemaster move Wednesday from his house on Pecan Street in Carbondale. Lemaster spent four days in a hotel last summer because his lease started after his orientation for school. This year, he is able to move between houses on the same day. Farias said he has been lucky when moving. “My landlord owns several properties and he is very willing to accommodate students who have gaps between their leases,” Lemaster said. Tiffany Blanchette
