Incoming students move in to colleges across western Connecticut

FAIRFIELD -

Freshman college students are moving in to western Connecticut colleges this weekend.

Part of the freshman class was moving in at Sacred Heart University on Friday. There was music playing and Student Life was giving out free lemonade for all the volunteers, students and parents moving in.

This year, the university welcomes just under 1,500 freshmen to campus - that includes eight sets of twins and triplets in the class.

Student organizations and sports teams were helping carry all of the incoming students' boxes and personal items into their rooms.

Sacred Heart University officials say it’s the largest freshman class in university history.
