As the weekend began, Texas Tech students who waited all summer to call Raiderland home made their way to campus to start the process of moving into their residence halls. Awaiting them were Howdy Techsan students ready to welcome and lead them to their rooms.
Students checked in to their residence halls and discovered where their home for the 2016-2017 school year would be.
Next came the heavy lifting, everything from TVs to clothes to groceries were carried in from cars and moving trucks by hand and in carts.
Walking down the hall, students, parents, siblings and friends could be seen moving things in, arranging, decorating, and even resting (for just a minute, they promise).
Next came the hard part: where to put all of their possessions!
And, of course, decorating their new room just so.
In the end, one thing is for sure, there's no place like home.
