VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Some of this year's freshman at Valdosta State University settled in Tuesday for their first day in their dorms.

Tuesday was day two of freshman move in at VSU. Students spent several hours Tuesday morning getting everything unloaded and getting checked into their rooms.

One freshman said he's looking forward to college, but he will miss being with his family. "For movin' in, it's a little bit of everything," said Raekwon Edmond, a freshman from Atlanta. "I'm nervous, excited, I'm ready to go yet still wanna stay home with my family...when I got dropped off, my mom was cryin' a lot."

Steven Scott also looked forward to moving in. "I'm ready to get moved in; pretty excited," Scott admitted. He said he's most looking forward to figuring out what he wants to do in the future. "Gettin' an education, findin' where I'm goin' in life," said Scott.

There are approximately 1,600 students in this year's freshman class. Around 2,600 students, freshman and upperclassmen, will be moving into dorms on campus at VSU this year. The total student population at the university is currently estimated at 11,200, but official numbers won't be out until October.
