2,000 Freshmen Move Into New SDSU Housing

August 23, 2013, 5:59 PM by Hailey Higgins

2,000 Freshmen Move Into New SDSU Housing
BROOKINGS, SD -

Thousands of incoming freshmen spend the first night on campus at South Dakota State University Friday.

Nearly 500 volunteers helped move the students, but their work isn't done yet.

The cars and trucks line up as students get ready to take their first steps as official freshmen on the South Dakota State University Campus in Brookings.

Andrea Rief and her family drove up three hours from Missouri Valley, Iowa, to move into her new dorm.

"I'm just excited to get away from home," Rief said. "I little nervous but that comes with it."

Rief is among 2,000 incoming freshmen moving in Friday. And many of them are settling inside four new multi-million dollar residence halls.

"The new dorms are huge compared to the other ones that I toured from the tours up here. Everything is new and fresh," Christy Mogck said.

Mogck is the first child in her Scotland, South Dakota, family to go away to college. She hasn't met her roommate yet, but is looking forward to her new adventure.

"I'm feeling kind of nervous but excited," Mogck said.

And while her parents put on a brave front, they are holding back tears while setting up her room.

"College was a lot of fun for me," Charles Mogck said. "I hope she has the same fun."

And while this day is bitter sweet, these students say they're optimistic about their first semester in college.

State admissions officials say the check-in process is running smoothly Friday.

Saturday, they will help another 2,000 sophomores move in. Classes start Monday at 7:00 a.m.
