After months of preparation to campus buildings and the implementation of recent protocols to all spaces, the Class of 2024 began arriving on campus on Sunday, August 23.
Staggered unloading times and COVID-19 test scheduling were just some of the procedures that became part of this year’s move-in days. And although smiles were obscured by facial coverings, the art of the smize (smiling with the eyes) was in full effect. There are 709 total new students this year (686 first-year students; 19 transfers; and four graduate students). Of the number of first-year students, 551 are in the arts and sciences; 102 are in the conservatory; and 33 are double degrees. The Class of 2024 have hometowns in 44 countries and 47 states. Returning students start their journey back to campus on Wednesday, August 25.
