Class of 2022

Chosen from a pool of 8,552 applicants, the Class of 2022 arrived in mid-August, and 551 students began their studies this fall — 534 on campus in Colorado and another 17 in Central America as part of our Fall Semester Away program. The students exploring Central America will complete four blocks of credit this fall and will join another 24 students as Winter Starts to begin their studies on campus in January 2019. The Class of 2022 hails from 45 states, the District of Columbia, and 18 foreign countries.

For the sixth consecutive year, more than half of the applicant pool chose to apply either Early Decision (ED) or Early Action (EA). The overall admit rate remained this year at 15 percent and the admit rates by round are as follows: 27% Early Decision I/II; 19% Early Action; 5% Regular Action. 

For the seventh year in a row, more than a quarter of the incoming class self-identify as students of color and 9 percent are international students. In the last decade, the population of students of color and international students has increased by more than 60 percent while seven percent of our incoming class are first in their families to attend college. Now in year five of our partnership with the QuestBridge organization (questbridge.org), we have QuestBridge Scholars in all four classes and, with the addition of 44 new QuestBridge students in the entering class, we have more than 150 QuestBridge students enrolled.

This class includes artists, athletes, community stewards, poets, and scientists. They speak 37 languages and plays 22 musical instruments. The Class of 2022 boasts 39 dual citizens, a North American Irish dancing champion, five pilots, a two advanced open water scuba divers, an aerial circus performer, a beekeeper, the CEO of a clothing brand company, and one founder of a bio-diesel startup designed to create efficient fuel for school busses.
