College students move in

OLNEY - August 21, 2008 - At LaSalle University, some 800 students unloaded family cars filled with clothes, paper, food, and even some comforts from home.

"Food, laundry, those kind of things," is what Bridgette Radtick of Cherry Hill, New Jersey said she'd be coming home for.

Students tell Action News that living on their own for the first time can be frightening.

But, it's not just the students who are stressed.

"I'm heartbroken," said mom Judy Drennen of Huntingdon Valley. "We live close, but she's my little buddy."

For Kevin Christy of Hatfield, the whole support team showed up to help him move in Thursday. That included mom, dad, sisters and brothers. They acted like pack mules loading everything up the stairs and into the dorm. By the end, the room of Christy's floor was covered.

And his roommate hadn't even moved in yet!

When asked if he thought he was moving in forever:

"Well, the way my mom's acting, yeah!"
