EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Wednesday was a busy day on the University of Southern Indiana’s campus as students began moving in.

New students began their move Wednesday, while other move-ins happen the rest of the week.

Housing officials say over 500 students moved onto campus, but that number will grow over 1,700 as the weekend gets closer.

Sydney Kleinert is taking on a new role as a resident assistant, during her sophomore year.

“Some of the things I’ve been doing leading up to this week are... we’ve done training all week which has been super fun,” Kleinert said. “I learned lots of knowledge about the RA role. My favorite part is that I got to decorate a hallway. I did an awesome friends theme, and I’m super excited about it.... Yeah, I’m just super excited to meet my residents and just be a leader and a friend to them.”

USI students will begin classes on August 22.

UE freshmen will be moving in on Thursday.
