If you noticed a lot of traffic around Notre Dame Friday, it was the result of “Move-In Day for the freshmen.
There was about a 15-minute wait for people to get where they needed to be on campus, but people involved in the move-in say it was very well-organized.
Notre Dame had people there on hand to help unload and bring things into the dorms.
Once freshmen students made it onto campus, the next order of business was making their small dormitory spaces feel like home.
Undergraduate halls opened Friday morning for students to haul up their belongings and begin settling in.
Some students brought huge trailers and their things had to be transferred into pick-up trucks in order to get it all to the dorms. But they had plenty of help from their families...as well as residence hall staff.
It was a lot of hard work, but in the end, patience and excitement seemed to win out.
"Move in started around 9 a.m. and its been going well. Looks like a great group of freshman. Staff has been working hard," said Paul Mickan, Merchandise Commissioner for O'neil Hall
"I have my little cave area with all my clothes and everything. Moms been doing most of the unpacking. Over here's my roommates section and he just got here, so he's starting to put stuff away," Said freshman biology major Erik Carlson.
Upper classmen will get their turn to move in on Sunday. Residence halls will open again at 9 a.m. for them.
