Over 3,000 students will be living on Eastern Michigan University's campus this year. 89.1 WEMU's Jorge Avellan was there as they started moving in today.
"New students can check in right here."
Volunteers direct students as they enter Sellers Hall on campus. Eastern is expecting about 1,100 new freshmen. That includes 18-year-old Michelle Deering who got a little help from EMU Police minutes after arriving with a friend.
"Our locks don't work on our car, so we had to manually lock it, and she accidentally locked the keys in the car with all of our stuff inside. We had to have three officers help us open the door."
Nearly 1,500 upper-class students will also be returning.
