New freshman say goodbye to parents

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Hundreds of rising freshmen say goodbye to their parents as they move into dorms at Valdosta State University.

These refrigerators, clothes, and televisions will all be crammed into rooms at Patterson Hall.

Student groups were there to help unload and get students settled into their new homes.

Christian Casiano is from Miami.

He chose Valdosta State University because of their engineering program that will allow him to transfer to Georgia Tech.

His mom says it will be an emotional ride back to Miami.

She's already sent three children off to college.

"I'm happy for him very nervous for myself wondering what I'm going to do with my life," said Sheila Casiano. "It's been so filled with kids for years and he's my final."

Vice President of Academic affairs Russ Mast says students shouldn't be afraid to ask questions and they should put academics first.

Classes at VSU start August 15th.
