The Class of 2008 Brings Skills and Talent to Campus

Caitlin Orr

Five hundred and seventy-two new students arrived on the Mount Holyoke campus this month, adding their energies, talents, and perspectives to a student body already noted for its academic accomplishment, diversity, and global awareness. Chosen from the second-largest pool of applicants in the College’s 167-year history, the class of 2008 continues the College’s commitment to diversity and its long tradition of international engagement. Ninety-nine of the new students (17 percent) are African American, Latina American, Asian American, and Native American (ALANA) students; 78 (14 percent) are international students. The new class represents 35 states and 32 nations. In addition, there are 39 Frances Perkins Scholars, or women of nontraditional age; 32 transferred to Mount Holyoke from other colleges. more>
