The University of Hartford will welcome more than 1,600 new students to campus as the annual "Move-in Weekend" begins on Saturday, Aug. 28. New students and their families will report to the University's Gengras Student Union for registration and check-in beginning at 8:30 a.m., and will then head to the residence halls to settle in.
The Class of 2014 comes from 35 states, including as far away as Alaska, and 22 different countries, including China, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, India, Germany, Mexico and the Bahamas. In gender, the Class is split fairly evenly with 50.6 percent women and 49.4 percent men.
This is the sixth consecutive year that the University's incoming class has numbered about 1,600, an encouraging sign given the state of the economy, notes Richard Zeiser, University dean of admission.
The incoming class includes 39 new Hartford Scholars, city of Hartford residents who graduated from a Hartford public high school or a Project Choice high school and met the University's entrance requirements. Hartford Scholars receive half-tuition scholarships. There will be approximately 100 Hartford Scholars enrolled at the University this year. The Hartford Scholars program is marking its 20th anniversary. Over the past two decades, about 300 Hartford Scholars have received Associates or Bachelors degrees at the University.
President Walter Harrison will officially welcome all the members of the Class of 2014 during University Convocation on Saturday at 5:30 p.m. in Lincoln Theater. A barbecue will immediately follow on the Gray Center lawn. First-year students will participate in their first college academic experience "Our Campus, Our Planet," a day of learning devoted to the environment, on Monday, August 30, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.
Upperclassmen are scheduled to return to campus on Sunday, Aug. 29. Classes begin on Tuesday, Aug. 31.
