PHOENIX — Here come the kids.

Grand Canyon University welcomed thousands of students — most of them wearing purple — to its west Phoenix campus Monday during the first day of move-in week.

Volunteers began setting up for the “Luggage Lug” at 5 a.m. and by 6 a.m. were greeting the first bunches of students and their parents.

University President Brian Mueller has been known to pitch in

A record 17,500 students have enrolled for the fall semester, the university said. About 3,000 are freshmen.

Classes at the school, at 33rd Avenue and Camelback Road, will begin Aug. 29.

Take good care of him, @gcu.💜 #ArizonaBound #LopeCountry ✈️
