BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A new generation of LSU Tigers made their way to campus Wednesday as it was freshmen move-in day. Around 2,500 new students moved into their dorms. What looked to be the consensus norm to bring, a T.V. and mini fridge.

Students received help moving their things from 500 faculty, staff, and students. One of the many people lending a hand was Randy Edwards. He knew that he was one of the first faces freshman will see so setting a good example was a must.

"I think what it shows them that LSU is a school that cares about them and is going to do what they need to be successful," said Edwards.

Success could describe the 8-hour journey from Texas for Juilene Philips and family. They were only moving one daughter in, but because she had so much stuff to bring the family had to rent what looked like a full size delivery truck.

"Well, you know the necessities of life," laughed Philips. "You wouldn't believe the stuff we left behind," she continued.

President of the LSU system F. King Alexander said it doesn't matter how much stuff you bring, all that really matters, is that you're here.

"We are here to make sure when parents go back home to their parishes and churches, they will tell everybody, when they came to LSU move-in day they made the right decision," said Alexander.

School starts Monday.
