FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) -- Local college students got their first taste of life after high school Sunday, as it was move-in day at Indiana Tech.

Parents and students spent the afternoon toting personal belongings from packed trucks up to the dorm rooms.

Bill Potter, the Residence Life Coordinator, says it's a very crucial time for freshmen who are taking their first steps on their own. He says it's important to meet the other people on their floor and build a little community.

“It's very important,” said Bill Potter, Residence Life Coordinator. “It's time to meet the fellow people on your floor and your roommates. It's time to build community and then you can use that community throughout the year when you need study partners, or classmates or anything like that.”

The day ends with a Luau Party in Scully Square. Fall semester begins on Wednesday, Aug. 28th.
