The Stats On 2014

The Class of 2014 arrives in less than a week and Vassar just put out its annual press release breaking down the class by data.

According to College Relations, this was the most selective year in the college's history (something they said last year too). Students come from 48 U.S. states and 29 foreign countries. As always, more students come from New York, California, Massachusetts, and New Jersey than any other states.

The fun facts:
One student sang at Madison Square Garden for Elton John's birthday.
One student plays on Hong Kong's under-20 national soccer team.
One student performed in two Broadway musicals. (Sound familiar?)
One student rode on Santa's float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Welcome, 2014! Check back in the coming days for more on the new freshmen class.
