Welcoming New Students and a New Year

Two weeks into the 2012-2013 academic year and we’re off to a great start! We welcomed 180 new students this fall, and our student body is now represented by six new countries: Bhutan, Dominican Republic, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Nigeria, and Zimbabwe. Here are a few other interesting (and fun!) facts about the new members of our community.
  • We have 17 new siblings (47 siblings all together)
  • One new student is fluent in Lithuanian
  • Over 20 new students attended Cushing’s Summer Session
  • One new student attended a NASA space camp in Alabama
  • One new student has 12 siblings
  • Four new students are legacies
We look forward to a great year and sharing the accomplishments of all of our students.
