More than 3,600 Northern Illinois University students are expected to move into campus housing on Friday.
Most of them will be coming into DeKalb between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Friday -- 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. being the busiest point in the day.
“It’s kind of the – it’s literally the kick-off for the school year,” NIU spokesman Joe King said. “I like to say it’s like the start of the baseball season – everybody’s undefeated when they come to campus on move-in day. So it’s one of the best days of the year.”
