The Class of 2007 Brings Talent, Energy, Diversity, and Leadership Skills to Mount Holyoke

Anna Boatwright

Five hundred eighteen first-year students joined the Mount Holyoke community this month, bringing to an already vibrant campus new energy, new ideas, and diverse backgrounds. Chosen from one of the largest applicant pools in MHC history, the class of 2007 embodies the College’s commitment to diversity. Ninety-three of the new arrivals (18 percent) are African American, Latina American, Asian American, and Native American (ALANA) students. Sixty-two members of the class are international students; 47 newcomers are Frances Perkins Scholars. Thirty-five new students transferred to MHC from other schools. In all, the incoming class represents 41 states and 37 countries.more>
