AU students begin moving in

Members of Class of 2017 make their arrival


“I brought my life with me,” Marni said, left holding her meinl rainstick.

There are about 500 incoming freshmen, 41 percent of whom are male, and 59 percent female. The majority hail from the Midwest, but in all, 29 states are represented by the new students. Eleven countries are represented by international students.

Members of the class of 2017 affiliate with no less than 36 Christian denominations.

Don’t look for slackers in this crowd with an average GPA of 3.35, and an average SAT score of 1070. Most of them are likely to choose majors like business, nursing, music, psychology, education and pre-health programs.

As Williams happily looked about at all the commotion of move-in day, he noted, “It’s a great beginning."
