Class of 2017
It is my pleasure to introduce the Class of 2017! Chosen from the largest applicant pool in the history of the college, the class is made up of 524 individuals who are talented in a myriad of ways. Beyond the statistical profile chronicled in this publication, they are intellectually curious, determined, and accomplished inside and outside of the classroom. We are also very proud to include students from 44 states and 31 countries. More than a third of the class are non-U.S. citizens or self-identify as students of color and this cultural diversity enriches our community.
The class also includes artists, athletes, community servants, poets, and scientists, as well as many students who have made powerful contributions to their schools, neighborhoods, and communities. We expect them to do the same while at CC. We have included profiles of eight incoming students and their stories to allow you to get a better sense of the types of students who choose CC and why.
