TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Today is the day Wildcat students and their parents have been waiting for, its move-in day at the U of A.

Students will be checking in and signing everything that needs to be signed and heading out to their residence halls.

More than 2,600 students are expected to come on campus today, though Wednesday was early move-in day, it was slower than university officials anticipated.  Today should be a busy day.

Each year a ‘mindset list' describes the students who will soon be freshman.  As for the upcoming students, the class of 2017, many of them will search for majors that lead to good-paying jobs; some will take a few courses taught at a distant university by a professor they will never meet in person. 

Some are even calling this group the ‘sharing generation' – sharing information, values and maybe for today, sharing some of the ramen that mom packed.
