Only a select few incoming freshmen made the move into a couple of the halls for what the university calls the "Lead Hog program."
It allows students who are brand new to the area to get familiar with their new surroundings.
"It's definitely different, moving from your home to somewhere new, kind of becoming an adult," says incoming freshman Payton Darby. "It's exciting but, weird at the same time. So, moving in a week and a half before classes even started, it helps definitely getting situated and everything else."
University officials expect even more incoming students to move in Saturday, and an even bigger move-in day is scheduled for next week.
Classes begin Aug. 20.
