Valdosta-- It's move in day for Valdosta State University freshman. Eighteen year old Ashley Johnson of Conyers is exciting about the next four years. "I'm nervous, but really excited to be here," said Johnson.

After filling out her housing paperwork, she gets the key to her new home for a year, and makes the heavy haul to Georgia Hall Room 222. "My best friends Amanda and Jared are here helping me," said Johnson.

She opens the door to four bare walls and an empty room, but with her special touches, it will soon feel like home. "I brought my tv, dvd player, plants, and little things to make it more comfortable," said Johnson.

Even though being away from home will be hard, Ashley has lots of pictures of family and friends and even her pet fish Sebastian to help her make it through the lonely times. "It's going to be a lot different without everybody, but I'm kind of looking forward to not have any adults to answer to!"

Saying goodbye to her best friends won't be easy, but Ashley knows they'll stay in touch and looks forward to making new memories in college.
