Congratulations and welcome, Class of 2027 03/24/2023

Last week, we admitted a truly talented group of individuals, who join another group of amazing students from Early Action. We are so lucky to work with the students and families we do, and our colleague Owen put that into words so eloquently. We hope to see all of our admitted seniors on campus soon and can't wait to have them on campus this fall!

Congratulations and welcome, Class of 2027 No two years are alike for those of us who work in admission, but – even in that context – several things stand out as I reflect on the past several months of work in our office.
