MILWAUKEE — It's move-in day at Marquette University. Thousands of first-year and transfer students began arriving on campus, walking the stairs and filling elevators with bedding and lamps.

Move-in began at 8 a.m. Students will be moving into 9 residence halls across campus.

Drivers should know there will be street closures between Wells and Wisconsin Street.

Some students we spoke with say they can't believe the big day is finally here.

“I’m looking forward to just like meeting new people and starting over and just meeting my people. In high school, you know, you meet some people like friends kind of come and go, but I heard like the college experience use, you make lifelong friends,” said freshman Abigail Weber.

“I’m pretty nervous and kind of sad about leaving my family but I mean, I think moving in should be pretty easy, but I'm just pretty nervous,” said freshman Camden Carter.

All this is happening as Americans across the country await President Biden's plan on student loan forgiveness.

President Biden is expected to slash up to $10,000 in federal student loan debt for borrowers making less than $125,000 a year. Some parents say that move can bring a lot of relief to students that may need it.

“College is so expensive these days and there are trades that don't necessarily need college, but this will end up, hopefully, pointing people in the direction of going to college and being able to afford the dreams that they want,” said parent David Weber.
