Welcome Classes of 2023!

First-years from as far away as Germany and Nepal and as close as the neighboring Finger Lakes arrived on campus in August to start their collegiate careers as the Classes of 2023. The academically impressive group of students, with a median high school GPA of 3.51 and SAT score of 1300, hail from 24 states and 15 countries. During Orientation, the newest Herons and Statesmen met their peers and professors, and participated in their first Day of Service. The semester officially kicked off with Convocation. The keynote address was delivered by Matt Lamanna '97, associate curator of vertebrate paleontology at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh, who spoke about his own career exploration.
