New freshmen bring diverse experiences and identities to Yale

Members of the Yale College Class of 2020 will arrive on campus today, taking part in one of the university’s most beloved traditions: freshman move-in day. The 1,373 new freshmen traveled from all 50 states and 50 different foreign countries to New Haven, where Yale President Peter Salovey, Dean of Yale College Jonathan Holloway, the deans and heads of the 12 residential colleges, and hundreds of student volunteers will officially welcome the newest members of the Yale community.

“Students in the class of 2020 have already accomplished a remarkable amount both locally and globally,” said Holloway. “Over the next four years they will share their varied experiences, ideas, identities, and passions with each other as they grow and undoubtedly leave their mark on the Yale community.”
