APPLETON - The school year for most college students is already underway. But it's just getting started at Lawrence University in Appleton.
The campus was filled with newcomers Tuesday for the beginning of Welcome Week.
This year, there are about 400 freshmen on campus.
Lawrence starts the school year later than most, due to its trimester schedule.
Both students and school officials believe it'll be a great year.
"Everybody's been super nice and I can't wait to meet my roommate. She should be here soon. So it's a little stressful, but I think I'll be able to make a lot of friends so everyone's awesome and I'm excited,” said Nina Sultan, Lawrence University freshman.
"Freshman move in day for us is like Christmas and our birthdays all wrapped into one because the admissions and financial aid staff gets to see the fruits of the labor," said Ken Anselment, Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid.
Classes start for students on Monday.
