Members of the Class of 2015 got a taste of the supportive and tight-knit Holy Cross community they had been hearing about as soon as they arrived on campus for move-in day Aug. 27.
A long-standing Holy Cross tradition, 200 student leaders, athletic teams and alumni — even Holy Cross President Rev. Michael C. McFarland, S.J. — helped move in the first-year students to their rooms. The minute they pulled up to their residence halls they were swarmed by the enthusiastic volunteers eager to welcome them to campus and carry their belongings into their rooms.
The 756 members of the Class of 2015 were selected from a record 7,353 applicants, an increase of about six percent over last year. Of the 7,353 applicants, 33 percent (or 2,436) were accepted. The highly accomplished Class of 2015 represent 33 states and 7 countries, and is the most diverse in the College’s history, with approximately 25 percent African-American, Latin American, Asian-American, and Native American heritage (ALANA) representation.
Classes began on Aug. 31.
