Saturday was move-in day for hundreds of Butler University students.

The class of 2018 came from 27 different states and six countries, but most were from right here in Indiana.

Parents who helped their freshmen move in have high hopes for the year.

"I hope he does well," said Phillip Hill of his son, a new freshman. "I hope he succeeds. I hope the transition is smooth and I wish him well."

Butler is welcoming 988 first-year students this weekend.
