Lebanon Valley College is preparing to welcome a record-setting 529 students, the largest cohort in the college’s history, for the fall semester of 2023.
The incoming class, which includes 480 first-year students and 49 transfer students, heralds from various parts of the globe, including as far afield as Australia and Alaska.
A previous record was set in 2019, when the college welcomed 478 first-year students and 37 transfer students.
“I am proud of everyone at The Valley for their tireless work in recruiting this impressive group of scholars-from the personal connections made by our faculty, coaches, and the entire campus community to the financial aid team who provided generous aid awards and scholarships to make LVC more affordable for our incoming students,” said Edwin Wright, vice president of admissions, in a press release.
“New and upcoming Marketing and Engineering Physics majors, combined with our in-demand programs in Nursing, Speech-Language Pathology, Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and School Counseling, reinforce LVC’s culture of offering a wraparound supportive experience for all our students.”
The new arrivals to the college’s Annville campus include more than 200 student-athletes.
LVC is poised for a busy semester with the grand opening of its new multi-million dollar School of Nursing building in August. In addition, the college will welcome the Rev. Dr. Bernice Albertine King, CEO of the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change and daughter of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., for a visit in September.
