Record number of freshman move into CSU dorms this weekend

It's move-in day at Cleveland State University as they welcome their largest freshman class in the school's history with 1,550 freshman.

Part of the move includes the move into phase one of the new $50 million North Campus development on Chester Avenue.

The new residence halls have been sold out for weeks, as new students enroll at CSU from more distant locales, including New York, Pennsylvania and Michigan.

Aside from the most freshman, they are also making history in another way.  Joe Mosbrook, spokesperson for CSU says, "This is the most academically prepared class in CSU history. They've got the highest GPA averages, the highest ACT averages. It's just an exciting time."

Two hundred new beds come on line at the Langston Apartments this week, creating a new critical mass of residents the campus district has never seen.

"I'm liking it so far, pretty good atmosphere," freshman Justin Stokes told us while moving in.

The festivities Saturday included a Hawaiian theme party and fireworks.
