EAST LANSING, Mich. (WSYM) - It's that time of year again when more than 8,000 first year students arrive at Michigan State University.

The class of 2021 is one of the largest planned freshman classes in the university’s history.

Similar to past years volunteers came to help with move in.

President Lou Anna K. Simon says MSU is ready for this school year.

“It's really a regeneration of the university and to see people who will help make a huge difference at Michigan state not only while they're here, but in the years ahead,” said Simon. “This is kind of that moment when that transition occurs and they really feel like they're Spartans.”

This year MSU enrolled the largest African American freshman class of any institution in the Big 10.

Returning students move in Monday morning and classes begin on Wednesday.
