It's that time of year. While younger kids are still enjoying their summer vacations, many freshmen are already moving into their dorms.
Sarah Wells of Sudbury is one of those newcomers. This past weekend, she and 930 other freshmen moved into their dorms at Bucknell University in Pennsylvania, the Daily Item of Sunbury, Pa. reports.
The students converged on the university's campus for a week of orientation and activities before the school year actually begins.
"There is a lot to do," Ms. Wells told the newspaper. "I'm excited about being here. It was tough to say good-bye to everyone back home, but I'm ready to get started here."
Her mother, who helped move her in, said "Sarah is our only child, so we knew this would be tough."
