Huge Freshman Class Arrives at NMSU

Las Cruces – These are exciting times for freshman students at New Mexico State University.

Students are starting to move-in as the school's largest freshman class in history, along with their families and friends, hustled to unload belongings in their new dwellings Sunday.

University Director of Housing and Residential Life Julie Weber said the school's dormitories are "beyond full" as more than 2,240 freshmen enrolled at NMSU last week.

The school had to assign two to three freshmen to each dorm room.

Classes begin Thursday at the Las Cruces school.
