Welcome to Campus

Hundreds of new students joined the Newhouse School this summer, marking the start of the 2022-23 academic year.

At an opening event Aug. 26, the school welcomed 602 new undergraduate students, including 530 incoming first-year students as well as 15 external transfer students and 57 internal transfer students. Collectively they represent 35 U.S. states and six countries, and have an average high school GPA of 3.9. Thirty percent of them are students from underrepresented groups.

Earlier in the summer, on July 5, 160 new master’s students arrived at the school. They hail from 28 states and 12 countries, with 37% from underrepresented groups.

The new Newhouse students embark on their inaugural year alongside several new faculty members.

Meanwhile, Newhouse spirit is thriving in the school’s three off-campus programs: Newhouse DC, Newhouse LA and Newhouse NYC. The brand-new Washington program enrolled five students this semester, while 35 students went to Los Angeles and 18 to New York City.
