VESTAL, N.Y. -- If you felt like there were more people in the greater Binghamton area, you were probably noticing all of the kids moving into Binghamton University.
BU residential life and university housing staff, as well as 1,500, worked to help get the new students acclimated to the university as well as keep the flow of traffic moving around campus.
While graduation may be the most exciting day of the year for students, organizers say moving in is definitely one of the most challenging and exciting day for the school as the staff brings the university back to life.
BU President Harvey Stenger told YNN it's not just about getting the students in, but also about making their parents feel at ease with where their child is going to be for the next few years.
Stenger said, "That first day, saying goodbye in the back seat of the car and wishing them luck and hoping that they do well is pretty tough on people. So we hope that when they get here and they say goodbye to their moms and dads that they feel comfortable and that they are ready to go."
Students will be moving in through Monday but the largest group arrived Thursday.
