High Point, NC -- The High Point University class of 2017 spent the day lugging heavy boxes and futons into their new, four-year homes as they prepared to start their first year of college.
Students started moving into dorms as early as 7:30 a.m. Saturday. And, the school was ready to give them a hand. Hundreds of students, faculty and staff volunteered to help the new students move onto campus.
The school's "orientation crew," as the group is known, helped new students and their families transition smoothly.
Now, it's time for the books. Classes start for HPU students Aug. 20.
