FULTON, Mo. - The William Woods University campus was alive with activity for its move-in day Wednesday.

Music blared, fraternities and sororities held open houses to entice new members and administration officials rushed from dorm to dorm as incoming freshmen and transfer students hauled furniture, snacks and supplies into their rooms with their families.

William Woods public affairs director Mary Ann Beahon said official figures weren't in yet, but the estimated number of new students was around 300.
