VIDEO: MUW Move In Day

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI)- Despite the sweltering heat, hundreds of Students took part in move in day at Mississippi University for women.

The traffic was backed up making it imperative that everyone was directed to a proper parking spot. And outside this dorm, students parents and volunteers unloaded the essential items for the school year.

Fortunately, a snow cone stand came in very handy for everyone dealing with the heat.

While freshman move in is nothing new here at the “W” this year is a little bit different because for the first time in a long time they’ll be student athletes moving on the campus, including members of the Owls soccer team.

Matthew Martin and Ethan Gardner are members of that team, and have known each other for a long time, having played together at Amory High School. Now they are roommates in the dorm.

Gardner is going into the nursing program while his friend and roommate Martin is majoring in history and wants to be a teacher and coach.

Classes start Thursday August 24th.
