ALBANY, GA (WALB) - For the first time in years, Albany State University has all of their 13 on campus residence halls filled.
More than 2,500 students will live on campus this year.
Vice President of Student Affairs Mishara Delaney said that students are looking to be more engaged outside the classroom.
Another reason students want to live on campus instead of commuting because it provides networking and socializing opportunities with fellow students.
Quadre Curry is a sophomore at ASU who lived on campus last year and will live on campus again this year.
"It's been a test of being on your own. And it's been nice to be in the dorms because you build a community with all the people that you know, all the other freshman. If I need sugar, or I need laundry detergent, or I need something like that, I can hit up somebody that I know is close by," explained Curry
Saturday is move in day for the Rams.
Students will be on campus as early as 7 a.m. getting settled in for the new school year, which will begin on Monday.
