Tens of thousands of college students returned to Columbia today for the upcoming fall semester.
It was moving day at the Mizzou dorms.
School officials are expecting about 500 fewer freshmen as compared to last year.
Freshmen Ryan Ingram of Liberty got a little help from his parents on moving day.
Ingram had no problem getting the dorm room of his choice.
Ingram said, ??Parking is kind of crazy over here. It??s a lot to do and it??s a lot to find. Otherwise, it??s pretty good.??
MU Director of Residential Life Frankie Minor said things are going remarkably well.
He praised his staff and the great weather we??re having as factors.
Minor said when its hot people can get frustrated quicker, especially when doing a lot of physical activity like moving heavy boxes.
