LONGVIEW/GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) - More than 450 students from almost all 50 states and 25 countries arrived in Longview today.
LeTourneau University held move-in day for incoming freshmen and transfer students from other colleges and universities.
For some students and families, it was, at times, an emotional day
"I'm pretty excited to be kinda on my own, I guess, and do my own thing. I haven't met my roommate or anything, but I guess it's just a new start today," said incoming freshman from Minnesota, Anna Steege.
Student orientation also began today -- and ends Sunday -- one day before the first day of the fall classes.
