CHAPEL HILL--Students across North Carolina are flocking back to Chapel Hill to get ready for the new school year.
But it is more than just move-in day at UNC Chapel Hill, the university has plenty of events planned for new and returning students.
Freshman and transfer students will feel the excitement of moving in for the first time and will be attending convocation, and all students get to take part in Sunday night's Fall Fest.
University officials report that they had a record-breaking 29,000 applications for the class of 2016. That up nearly 25 percent from last year.
About 4,000 of those accepted will be enrolling at Carolina this fall.
Students said they were excited to get back to school.
"Everybody's getting to see each other again after being gone over the summer and you get to keep up with old friends you didn't get to talk to and see friends that you didn't get to talk to," said sophomore Dustin Carden.
Some congestion will be expected in Chapel Hill on Sunday as students continue to move in.
Part of South Road through main campus will be closed Sunday night for Fall Fest from 9:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.
