On Tuesday, Aug. 20, the university officially welcomed the approximately 750-member Class of 2023 to campus during move-in day.
The freshmen are drawn from more than 15 states, including Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, California, Georgia, North Carolina, Texas, and Virginia, and from seven foreign countries, including Ghana, Greece, India, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and Turks and Caicos. An additional 100 transfer students also join the freshmen.
Move-in is followed by several days of orientation programming to help the newcomers acclimate to campus. Returning students move back to campus on Aug. 25, and classes begin on Aug. 26.
