'Organized Chaos 2013' as CofC students move into dorms

Posted: Updated:
CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Thousands of College of Charleston students began the annual rite moving into their dorms on Friday.

That includes more than two thousand freshmen.

"I'm excited. I'm ready to start classes surprisingly. All of the upper classmen probably think I'm crazy," said freshmen Allie Unterreiner.

"This is all because of a family vacation, so we found this about a year and a half ago, so here we are," said her father Rob Unterreiner.

"Exciting definitely, I'm also really nervous," said freshman Alexa Rodriguez.

It's a weekend of excitement and stress, as students seemingly move their entire rooms from one part of the country to another.

They are carrying their belongings into the dorms.

As one car moves in and unloads items, another car moves out.

College of Charleston Police keep things moving along.

Many students brought their parents to help out.

"She'll move in tomorrow and I'll fly home and she'll be great and have a great time," said Julie Creighton, whose daughter is attending the college.

It's not just parents helping their kids move in. Fellow students are working as volunteers.

"They just asked us to volunteer and so we want to help other freshmen, get them acclimated to school. People helped us do it last year. We're just trying to help them out, same people did for us," said sophomore Peter Bruno.

For students who've made this move before, it's easy as one, two three.

"Super exciting, also like time to say goodbye to the parents, shove off, you know," said sophomore Clay Dustin.

Classes begin on Tuesday.
