largest first-year class in Centre history.
The 356 students making up the Centre College Class of 2014 have only been on campus for two weeks, and already they have made history at the College.
The class is the largest incoming first-year class in Centre history, and this year, the ratio of male-to-female first-year students is one-to-one.
The average ACT score for the class is 28.55, and 60 percent of the students graduated in the top 10 percent of their high school class.
Forty-seven percent of the members of the class are from out of state, including seven international students, and 14.2 percent of the class is made up of minority students.
More students in the class are from Kentucky than any other state, followed by Tennessee, Ohio, Massachusetts, North Carolina and Georgia.
During their first year at the College, the members of the Class of 2014 will have the opportunity to bear witness to a number of exciting new Centre offerings. This year will be the first in which the College will compete in intercollegiate lacrosse, the game deemed “the fastest sport on two feet.” The first-year students will also be present for the grand reopening of Young Hall, which has undergone a significant expansion and renovation and will open its doors later this fall. And they will have a chance to experience the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Gustavo Dudamel—a North American first.
