FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Sidewalks and parking lots were lined with students moving into their dorms on the Purdue Fort Wayne campus this morning.

"Busy day today. Everybody's moving in, it's always great to meet new people," said student Alec Koscielnik.

"All of my kitchen appliances because it's a full kitchen and a lot of clothes and stuff. I'm exhausted but I'm exited for this year," said student Hannah Haffenden.

Over 1000 returning and incoming students are expected to be on campus for the first move-in day.

"They'll continue to be able to move in Thursday, Friday, and some may even be able to continue next week," said Purdue Fort Wayne Dean of Students Eric Norman.

Returning students says they're excited about new classes, seeing and meeting new people, and being back on campus.

"Crunch time is coming up soon, so it'll be fun. I'm excited," said student Wes Cable.

"Probably my friends. I haven't seen them all summer so and I kind of miss my classes," said Haffenden.

And hundreds volunteers helped students settle in.

"People are checking folks in to register their vehicle, their bike,obviously get the keys to their room. There's some other outside providers here to explain some of the services provided in town," said Norman.

Classes start Monday, but there are many activities for students to participate in before they start.

"From slip-and-slides, to concerts, we have an ice cream social this evening, we're going to have some community service fairs," said Norman.
