Queens welcomes largest freshman class in university’s history

CHARLOTTE — Queens University welcomes more than 350 first-year students for its start of classes today. School officials say the group marks the largest first-year class in the university’s history.

Traditional enrollment has grown almost 40 percent over the past four years.

“We look forward to seeing the contributions that these new students will make and to keep building upon other recent successes,” Queens President Pamela Davies said in a press release Tuesday.

The first-year students represent 30 states and 18 countries.
