Meet the Class of 2015

Class of 2015
They are the record-breaking, AP-taking, difference-making Class of 2015 and it is our pleasure to introduce you to these, our new first-years, by letting you know just a few of the things they have already achieved.

Incoming students for this academic year competed among the largest pool of applicants ever and, in the process of admitting the class of 2015, other records were broken, too. The 2,270 total applications for a first-year place mark a 12.32 percent increase over the previous high of 2,021 (set in 2008) and a 12.76 increase from last year.

The office of admission went on to enroll the second-largest group in college history. The incoming group totals 659, a figure that includes 580 new U.S. first-years, 56 new U.S. transfer students and 23 international students. The new cohort is the most selective ever and also includes the largest number of students of color.

Individual members of the class have already proven themselves in some pretty remarkable arenas. Among their numbers are:
  • 290 who enrolled in AP courses in high school.
  • One who enrolled in 10 AP courses while in high school.
  • 186 who captained a varsity sport.
  • One who captained five sports.
  • The opening act for a Third Eye Blind concert in Chicago.
  • The sole proprietor of her own photography business.
  • An ambassador to the United States at the International Youth Games in Austria.
  • An international champion in high school a cappella.
  • A delegate to a congressional leadership conference – in China.
  • The 2010 Reserve World Horse Show Champion.
  • The founding president of the Terminal Illness Awareness Club.
  • Miss Door County 2011.
  • 98 who participated in mission trips, with destinations that included the Dominican Republic, France, Haiti, Jamaica, the Philippines, the Virgin Islands and Zambia.
  • 140 with a family member who graduated from, or currently attends, St. Norbert College.
