STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WSAU) -- The population of Stevens Point is making a drastic jump right now. That’s because students are coming back to the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point.
The freshmen started putting their belongings in the dorms Thursday, and even more students are coming Friday and over the weekend.
Over 1,600 freshmen were expected on campus Thursday as they begin the next chapter in their life with school away from home and meeting other students going through the same experience. UWSP officials encourage the new students to spend some time this weekend learning their way around campus, and to get involved in the many campus activities.
