It's an exciting day for hundreds of students at the University of Rochester. The campus was buzzing for move-in day for freshmen.
It's the nerves, the excitement.
"It's so exciting there's just so many different things to do," said freshman Allison Weiss.
And most of all the experience that makes move-in day at college.
"It's really nice to have your own space and really just get on to that next step in your journey," said freshman Ben Wucher.
The U of R was a top choice for Wucher.
"He's the youngest and we didn't think he could find a more expensive school than his brother, but he managed to do that," said Brad Wucher, Ben's father.
"Who's at Syracuse by the way," adds Peggy Wucher, Ben's mother.
Tuesday, the school opened its campus to 1,300 freshman from 49 different states and 71 different countries.
"There are some programs I really like, like three plus two, three years in undergraduate and two years in graduate," said J.P. Woo, international student.
Enrollment size at the University of Rochester has been on a steady increase over the last few years and today they were welcoming their largest class yet.
"Well, we are a research university that's gone global. It's not only that we have 47 states in this country, but 19 percent of our students are international students and they are coming here from around the world because of the quality of the education," said U of R president Joel Seligman.
Seligman says this is the school's most diverse class as well. He says it's a great start of another successful school year.
"At a university, the first day of school is like the first day of the baseball season; you just feel thrilled," said Seligman.
