President Roger Casey helping students move in.

After picking up keys and ID cards at check-in, the 426 members of the Class of 2018 were met the morning of Aug. 20 with yellow-shirted teams of more than 100 upperclassmen, staff and faculty – and even President Roger Casey – to help them move into their new homes on the Hill and begin their five-day orientation.

The Class of 2018, selected from a pool of 3,427 applicants, includes students from 23 states, the District of Columbia and five countries including Egypt, Greece, Thailand and Vietnam. First generation college students account for one third of the class, while more than one fourth are students of color.

With almost half of the incoming students representing the top 25 percent of their high school classes, McDaniel welcomes 42 new members of the Honors Program as well as the four inaugural Dorsey Scholars, who receive extra academic opportunities as well as scholarships that cover full tuition, room and board for all four years.
