The Class of 2025, selected from a record pool of 10,969 applicants, arrives on campus in mid-August with 625 students scheduled to begin their studies this fall.

For the ninth consecutive year, more than half of the applicant pool chose to apply either Early Decision or Early Action, and for the eighth consecutive year, more than a quarter of the incoming class self-identify as students of color; additionally, 6% are international students. In the last decade, the population of students of color and international students has increased by more than 60% while 10% of the incoming class are first in their families to attend college. We’ll have more information on the incoming class in the winter issue of the Bulletin, but here’s a sneak peek!
