(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Hundreds of students moved into their dorms on Missouri Western State University's campus Wednesday morning.
Missouri Western welcomed around 1,000 new students during the university's Move-In Day.
Many of the new students will be living in Scanlon Hall.
University leaders said today is a just the first step in their journey.
"We hope they get the best experience possible and that they focus on finishing their degree in four years and working towards graduation. The whole goal of everything we do on campus is putting students first. That begins today," said MWSU Associate Director of Admissions Dixie Williams.
The first day of class for Missouri Western students is Monday.
