ASHLAND, Ore. -- Oh move in day. Especially for those first time college students.
"A lot of nerves," Sean Nelson says.

You can say that again.
"It was crazy on the way here but," Nelson adds.

It’s what you make of the day. Sean Nelson would agree.
"So once you get here everyone is just doing their thing so it’s actually a lot easier once you're here,” Nelson goes onto say.

Sean’s not the only one breaking a sweat today. Chris Downey is helping those move in as well.
"I’ve been here for two months and it's just kind of been the other athletes and it’s been like 100 people on campus with a bunch of empty rooms," Downey says.

Chris is a freshman and he plays soccer.
"It’s different from being own our own it's a little nerve racking a first but after I’ve had my first two months to adjust I’m loving it,” Downey adds.

Sam Willis’s drive to school isn’t too far.
"so its good to meet new people from anywhere across the nation.

Sam is a freshman too - he graduated from South Medford

"It’s basically like I’m still living at home - like I’m still living in my house that I was for high school,” he adds.

At least he was helping people move in today.... A little hard work, before the real work begins.
