Northfield, VT (PRWEB) August 29, 2011
Last year there were 792 students in the entering Class of 2014, but this year there was an intentional effort to cap the incoming class.
“Our story is really about demand,” said Karen McGrath, vice president for enrollment management and communications. “Despite our efforts to bring in a smaller class we exceeded our goals both in quantity and quality; we again became more selective this year.”
The average SAT scores for entering freshmen are up 20 points, and Norwich accepted 57% of applicants.
“The fact that a Norwich education is in such high demand says to me that our long history of educating leaders in the community and in the military is a value that this generation of college students is really seeking out,” according to McGrath.
The class is 77% male; 8% of the class has secured a three or four year ROTC scholarship and 3% of the class is currently enrolled in the Honors Program.
Here is the breakout of statistics for the Norwich Class of 2015:
8. CA/TX (tied)
9. FL/PA (tied)
Social Sciences: 39.4%
Mathematics and Sciences: 22.5%
Business and Management: 15.7%
David Crawford School of Engineering: 14.2%
Architecture and Art: 3.3%
