Kennesaw State University freshmen move into their new on-campus homes (Marietta Daily Journal)
KENNESAW, Ga. (Aug 12, 2017) — A favorite comforter, a beloved computer and a borrowed mini-fridge. Textbooks, hockey sticks and pictures to remind you of home.
It’s the time of year when college students pack their belongings into boxes, hug mom and dad goodbye and move into a dorm for the first time.
“It’s interesting, knowing that I won’t be living with my parents and I’m going to be on my own,” said Charles Featherstone as he unpacked his computer in his Kennesaw State University dorm room on the Marietta campus. “That’s an interesting feeling and thought.”
