The University of Hartford is prepared to welcome nearly 1,650 new students to campus, as the annual “Move-in Weekend” begins on Friday, August 28, and continues throughout the weekend. The University’s Class of 2019 has about 150 more members than last year’s class and will be the largest class to enter the University since 2009.
From a full-service Starbucks in Mortensen Library, to an attractive new classroom and performance space at The Hartt School, to new brick walkways outside the Harry Jack Gray Center, this summer's construction projects have brought a variety of improvements to campus.
When Nicholas Wollmann ’15 came to campus in fall 2014, he introduced himself to his classmates as “a freshman-senior.” The description, while unusual, was accurate. He was a first-year student in terms of housing and student life, but academically, he was a senior, having already earned more than 90 credits towards graduation.
