The University of Hartford welcomes the Class of 2024, an impressive and diverse group of first-year students who are unlike any other class before them.

These future CEOs, engineers, nurses, doctors, lawyers, educators, artists, and more have already proven themselves to be a resilient group who have overcome the unexpected challenges of 2020 and completed their high school careers strong.

The members of the Class of 2024 are from 37 states including the District of Columbia, as well as 17 foreign countries. Of the 1,260 students, including 100 transfer students, the largest number are from Connecticut (more than 500), while other leading states are New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. UHart’s international students are coming to the University from countries as close as Canada, and as far away as China, Ghana, New Zealand, and South Africa. 

We already know how special this class is by the obstacles they had to overcome to get here. It’s wonderful to finally welcome them to UHart!”
