On Friday, freshmen and their families will move into the residence halls at South Dakota State University.
There are four new residence halls this year at SDSU. With the new dorms, the staff has been working hard to make sure everything is ready for the parents and students to move in Friday.
Since more than 2,000 students will be moving in, SDSU officials say there will be plenty of crews here to help.
"We work really hard to provide the labor that comes with moving things up and down the halls and up and down the stairwells. Parents that come with their students now will have an army of student volunteers and staff and faculty volunteers to help with that process," Assistant Director of Residential Life for Living and Learning Initiative Toby Uecker said.
The Associate Vice President of Student Affairs says even though it is a very big day for families, he wants to remind people that this is a big step in their student's life.
"It is neat to see mom and dad to be ready to let them go and the son or daughter realizing that they are taking a really big step. You'll see some tears, but that is just because those ties are there," Associate Vice President of Student Affairs Doug Wermedal said.
On Friday, freshmen will move in and on Saturday sophomores will move in.
