With just a few days left until the start of the fall quarter, students at Cal Poly are gearing up for their new life on-campus.

Parents and family members spent most of Saturday helping their students move into their new home for the next school year.

Marissa Deloge, a parent of an incoming freshman, traveled all the way from San Diego to drop her daughter off at what she says was always her dream school.

"Since she was a little girl, she always asked to be in this college and we're here! We're moving her in with all her stuff and driving from far away but it's an amazing experience and I'm a proud mom!" said Deloge.

The school had resident assistants and greek life students who helped incoming and transfer students successfully sign in to their new apartment buildings.

During the move-in, students could also stop by the second annual CP Thrift resale fair.

The fair sells basic household items which have been collected from Cal Poly students during the June move-out of undergraduate students.

Although temperatures were definitely high, Amy McDowell who traveled from Seattle to drop off her only son, says her family found the entire process to be easy and very well organized.

"I feel good about this place, very good. I'm jealous. I wish I could live here," added McDowell.

Cal Poly says they are on-target for an enrollment of about 21,500 students and that the incoming class is on track to be the most diverse and the highest achieving academically in the school's history.

The school will begin its fall quarter on Thursday.
