Thousands of students are moving, unpacking and settling in on college campuses across the country.
RIT welcomed one of its largest undergrad classes as more than 2,600 freshman moved in today.
RIT stayed as organized as possible with teams of upperclassmen assisting car loads of new students who pulled up to unload and move in to the residence halls to prepare for the start of classes. For the first time, RIT is operating on semesters versus the old quarter-based school calendar.
Students will spend the next couple of days in orientation to find their way around campus, go over rules and expectations with safety in mind. First-year student Ethan Marsh from Vermont is majoring in mechanical engineering.
"I am just excited to start my engineering career here and I am excited to meet some new people. I kind of know the campus a little bit and like I am familiar with it and I am just really excited."
Classes are RIT begin Monday.
