The University of Hartford will welcome about 1,500 new students to campus, as the annual “Move-in Weekend” begins on Friday, August 30, and continues throughout the weekend. New students and their families will begin by checking in at the University’s Gengras Student Union and then head to the residence halls to unpack.

The University’s Class of 2017 comes from more than 35 states, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, as well as 27 foreign countries. The majority of students are from Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts, but there are 21 members of the Class of 2017 from California. The foreign countries sending the most first-year students to the University of Hartford are Saudi Arabia, China, Korea, and Kuwait.

Among the Class of 2017 are 35 Hartford Scholars. Founded in 1990, the Hartford Scholars program provides half-tuition scholarships to Hartford residents who are graduates of Hartford public high schools.

The Class of 2017 is evenly split between male and female students. The most popular majors among the incoming class are biology, engineering, architecture, physical therapy, and psychology.

Upperclassmen are scheduled to return to campus on Monday, Sept. 2.

Classes for all students will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 3.
