Meet the Class of 2024

Our incoming freshman class is the most diverse, demographically, in the College's history. These new students join us with two common goals — to make the most of their time on our campus and in New York City. During their time at the College, they'll make great friends, meet new academic challenges and prepare for their future careers.

Meet a few members of the class of 2024 below.
