It's hard to read the mood of campus on the first day of classes. 

There are the overly eager freshmen who call their moms after every class, the super seniors who couldn't bother to bring a pen and the students who just returned to reality after a dream summer abroad. 

Students have been a mix of excitement, dread, nostalgia or boredom. But some experiences are consistent across campus -- 90-degree heat, uncomfortably crowded walkways, infamous bookstore lines and reconnecting with friends. 

We talked to some students about what they've been feeling on this first day and how their classes have been going.
