It's move in weekend for college students at Michigan State University.

More than 8,000 students will unpack their belongings and hang up their posters to decorate their dorm rooms on Saturday. And on Monday, returning students move back in.

The total returning to campus to live is 15,000 students.

MSU says this year's freshman class is it's largest and most diverse in history.

"Enrollment is up for African-American, Hispanic and Asian students," Jessi Adler stated in a press release. "More than 76 percent of the new students are from Michigan."

There will be events for the kids to check out all week including:
- One Book One Community presentation, featuring the author of "My Beloved World," Supreme Court Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor
- Fall Convocation at Breslin Student Events Center
- 38th annual UFest at the MSU Union
- Fall Welcome Spartan Spectacular and Sparticipation
- College colloquiums
- Fill the Bus service project

And everyone traveling to campus should take note of construction in the area.

There are road closures due to construction projects near the College of Music, Akers and Hubbard halls and the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams.

Students return to class on Wednesday.
