A big step for some new students today, as Freshman moved into the dorms of Gannon University.
Gannon welcomes 700 new undergraduates this year, from all over the globe.
Upperclassmen and faculty helped students and their families with the heavy lifting, carrying boxes up all those stairs.
Even President Dr. Keith Taylor did his part.
The move-in crew is a Gannon tradition, and it's gotten very efficient.
"I've done a lot of openings, this is the fastest I've ever seen an opening line move through and it's gotta be all the hands on deck," said Denise Golden, Gannon's Director of Residence Life.
"The efficiency is amazing of moving things in, and if I'm gonna ask them to do it I might as well get out and do it myself, so we're having fun," said Dr. Taylor.
Incoming Freshman Greg Incardona was shocked by the help he received. "We had a trunk full of all my clothes, and a lot of different food, and Xbox, stuff like that," he said.
His dad was even more grateful, saying, "It's fantastic, I think the stuff was in the room before I got out of the car."
After students were all moved in, Dr. Taylor opened the new semester with a convocation ceremony Saturday afternoon.
