BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Buffalo State class of 2020 started moving into their dorms on Tuesday morning. You can only imagine the mixed emotions their parents felt while helping their young adult start their new lives.

This year, demands for on campus housing have exceeded the limits of the school. and more than one hundred students will be living in residence halls at Medaille College.
For the students new to town, that might not have a ride, ZipCar is now at the school. The car can be rented for as little as an hour, or as long as a day, and it can be unlocked with the ZipCar app.
The new students will participate in a 2-day orientation, and begin class on Monday.
