UNC-Chapel Hill welcomes thousands of first-year, transfer students Friday


CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (WNCN) – Thousands of students are moving into their dorms ahead of the upcoming school year at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Nearly 4,000 first-year and transfer students could start moving their belongings into their dorms Thursday.

The university is expecting to house more than 8,000 students total by the first day of classes.

One freshman says although he’s excited about the school year, he’s nervous about meeting his new roommate.

“It’s a little nerve wracking but you just hope for the best and got to trust that everything is going to turn out fine and we’ll all get along well,” Jack Robinson said.

Rising sophomores, juniors and seniors will be moving back throughout the week for the 2016-2017 academic year. They started making their way back to school Wednesday.

Chancellor Carol Folt and Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Winston Crisp will greet new students at Morrison Residence Hall Saturday afternoon.

Classes start next Tuesday.
