It's move-in weekend at McMaster University as nearly 4,000 students get set up in their new homes on campus.
Posts on social media showed the enthusiastic welcomes from costumed crews, who helped newcomers find their rooms in 13 buildings across campus.
Move-in moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/McMaster?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#McMaster</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/moveinweekend?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#moveinweekend</a> We’re 45% done! <a href="https://t.co/c52RTf6XTx">pic.twitter.com/c52RTf6XTx</a>—@macrezlife
"The mood on campus is incredible," said Holly Gibson, manger of marketing and communications for the university's Housing & Conference Services.
"The move-in is a huge day for McMaster, for our students, it's also a big milestone for their families so we want to make sure we bring lots of energy and positivity and excitement."

The move in is a mammoth effort that takes months of planning and involves more than 3,900 students, 100 staff members and 1,250 student volunteers.
All of those people are working to make sure it's as smooth and as painless a process as possible, Gibson said.
"We do encounter some emotional families today and we want to make sure they feel great and confident and full of pride when they leave today and that their students are in good hands," said Gibson.
