Moving weekend hits Boston's college neighborhoods

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - It's the first weekend of September so that can only mean one thing: lots of traffic and moving trucks blocking roads in Boston.

It's almost time for school to start for college students and they're all flocking to college neighborhoods such as Brighton and Allston to move into their new dorms and apartments.

A lot of work for the thousands of students who are back in the Boston area after the summer break. Some of them still battling jet lag.

Mark Mu is a sophomore at Boston University who just flew in from his home in Shanghai, China and now gets to spend his Sunday moving in without any help.

"I'm quite excited. I just got here yesterday in the U.S.," Mu said. "Unpacking those boxes. I really hate that."

Others are relying on family and friends to help them unload their boxes and suitcases stuffed with clothing, TVs, toiletries and everything that's going to help get them through the next three months.

Katie Delorme's family drove in from Maine Sunday morning to help her move across the street. In fact, a lot of students who stayed in town for the summer are doing the same thing, moving out of one apartment and into a new one nearby.

"We're moving into a bigger place..it's fun because I get to redecorate and clean out old stuff," Delorme said.

A lot of students will be working into the Labor Day holiday, getting packed and unpacked and getting ready for classes, which for many begin Tuesday.
