It’s that time of year. College students across the country are wrapping up their summer vacations and heading back to school.

Nicholas Diddle, a freshman at K-State, is moving into his dorm room.

“I’m excited. A little nervous for the new chapter in my life but I’m ready to begin,” said Diddle.

And like most first time college students, Diddle packed a household of equipment and necessities-- from a flat screen TV to a mini fridge.

“I like to be prepared and get a lot of the stuff out of the way and not have to worry about moving anything else. So it makes it easy,” said Diddle.

Across the hallway, freshmen Adam Meyer and Tyler Griffith have their dorm room set up.

The two have configured their room to include two bunks, one desk, a futon, stand up dresser with a TV on top, and metal racks set up as a pantry loaded with a coffee maker and snacks.

“We just moved a lot of stuff around and now, I like it a lot,” said Griffith.

K-State is welcoming over a thousand students Saturday for Move-In Day and these freshman got a head start.

“Get into the mindset that you’re about to head off and move on your own,” said Diddle.

Nicholas has a twin brother that is off to college as well. His mother is excited for the brothers' new chapter in life.

“It’s just exciting to watch them fly the nest and go off and start the chapter. We’re just excited for their future,” said Candice Diddle, Nicholas’ mother.
