First-Year Students

We're delighted to welcome the Class of 2019 to celebrate the start of a new school year!

The Class of 2019 has an important resource in Kate Schurick, the Dean of First-Year Students. She works with first-year students and their families to navigate social, academic, and personal issues. There are many supports available and a rich community that will promote growth, responsibility, and leadership on campus.
