The 5,100 freshmen entering the University of Connecticut for fall 2016 include more valedictorians, more salutatorians and greater diversity than any previous class, according to a university press release.
About 3,800 freshman (including a record 156 valedictorians and salutatorians) will start classes at the main campus in Storrs on August 29. Another 1,300 (including 25 more valedictorians and salutatorians) will start at the regional campuses.
