The entering class the Class of 2017 is expected to be the largest in the university's 57-year history.

Check-in began at 8 a.m., but the Office of Undergraduate Admission saw the most activity from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. On hand were more than 70 orientation leaders and admission counselors, who welcomed the university's new residents to campus by helping them and their families unload cars and by being available to answer questions related to residence and campus life.

The size of our undergraduate student population provides us with a unique opportunity to provide a more personal experience when compared to move-in day at larger universities, said John Plotts, vice president of enrollment and student affairs. Even with record enrollment, our goal is to make sure all of our students and their families feel comfortable from the very moment they arrive.
