Students started moving into the dorms at the University of Wisconsin Superior on Thursday, carrying everything they need for a new life.

From the scene on campus, it was clear that the dorm life isn't keeping a new generation of college students from enjoying their technology. Sam Lenzen and his roommate brought a larger-than-life television up the stairs to their dorm.

"We've got a 48-inch Vizio TV, mini fridge, bean bag chairs, PS4, lots of clothes, food," Lenzen said.

When it comes to college, Lenzen said the comforts of home are still important. He said he's also looking forward to getting out of his comfort zone and, of course, learning.
