We'll have a fine time in the old town tonight 

Students returned to campus on the traditional Labor Day move-in, and the normal amount of revelry and disorderliness ensued. I love this one quote.

Some partiers, such as St. Cloud State student Kirk Pauley, began drinking as
early as 9 a.m.

"Move-in day is kind of like Christmas, you're so excited you can't sleep the night before," Pauley said. "When you wake up in the morning, the present is beer."

Momma Pauley, you done good. (Kirk, btw, has been in one of my classes; he did OK, Momma.)

I'll be busy with student advising, so posting will be sporadic until evening.

UPDATE: A retired faculty member who lives where the partying occurs has a photo gallery. I drove through the area this morning and confirm that it looks like that.
