NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – It's officially back to school for thousands of college students in New Hanover County.
Saturday was the annual move-in day at UNCW.
Students involved in Greek life, sports teams and other campus organizations help to move freshmen students into their dorms.
And they do it at a rapid pace- students say it takes only minutes to get a car completely unloaded.
They tell us it's a great way to welcome students to campus and take a load off mom and dad's shoulders.
Tara Olson was dropping her daughter off at Belk Hall. She loved the volunteer move-in service.
"It takes a lot of pressure off," said Olson. "It's less hectic getting in and out of the dorm. It's just an incredible time-saver so now we get to spend real time together today instead of having to worry about unloading the cars."
Classes begin on Wednesday.
