Summer sessions come to a close and college campuses are buzzing with new students. Many institutions capture the spirit of Move-in Day, freshmen induction ceremonies and the first days of classes than with a short sharable video that is sure to put a smile on the faces of students, parents, staff and alumni.

Here are a few of our favorites from the incoming class of 2015.

    Nice collection! This is a cute little video RIT did this year about things new students brought from home to help them adjust. The last sequence is kind of touching if you are a parent. 😉
