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.
