DANVILLE, KY—It's official. The total enrollment for the 2006-7 Centre College academic year is an all-time record, as is the number of first-time freshmen enrolling at Centre.
As of Aug. 31, there are 1147 full-time students enrolled at Centre this year, of whom 328 are first-time freshmen and nine are new transfers. The 328 incoming freshmen in the class of 2010 are also a new record.
In what has become an annual tradition, the Centre community greeted the freshmen the moment they arrived in the parking lot on move-in day last Thursday. Some had all their gear inside their dorm room in fewer than five minutes.
"Helping freshman get settled in sets an important tone as soon as they arrive," says President Roush. "We promise our students personal education, and we want them to know from the moment they first set foot on campus that our promise of the personal touch will be kept."

Classes started Monday, Aug. 28.
