    The Class of 2002: A Profile

A statistical overview of the Class of 2002 shows a group of notably intelligent, diverse and well-rounded students.

  • A total of 4,348 students applied for entrance to the Class. Of this number, 2,061, or 47.4 percent of the applicants, were accepted for admission; 724 students enrolled.
  • Members of the Class ranked in the top 8 percent of their high school classes.
  • The average SAT score of those who enrolled was 1252.
  • The College continues to place a high priority on the sons and daughters of alumni: 69 percent of alumni children who applied were accepted.
  • Forty-four percent of the Class attended public high schools. Fifty-six percent hailed from private or church-affiliated schools.
  • Students in the Class represent 37 states and six foreign countries, including Canada, Costa Rica, Greece, Italy, Jamaica, and the Philippines.
  • Ninety-nine percent of the Class lives in on-campus residence halls.
  • Included in the class are 23 African-Americans, 48 Latinos, and 24 Asian-Americans, or 12 percent of the class.
  • These numbers are the result of the hard work of the College’s Admissions staff, as well as the approximately 1,200 alumni volunteers who assist at college fairs and serve as local interviewers.
