Thousands of new Tech students moved into their new homes on campus

Posted: Updated:

While area students are heading back to the classroom, thousands of Texas Tech students are preparing their new homes. More than 6500 Red Raiders will call the dorms home this year.

Residents were allowed to start moving in Sunday. With a little help from parents and friends about half of the students took advantage of the first day to get settled in.

Mary Jo Reding, who's son will be attending Tech this year, was one of the many people that arrived on campus to help. " We got here early, moved in early, avoided the lines, avoided the sweat, just coming back from Wal-Mart and we're ready to go."

While many Red Raiders live on campus, nearly 23,000 students are expected to take up residence off campus. Classes at Tech will begin on Thursday.
