Our campuses are filled with activity these days, as Jesuit colleges and universities welcome the Class of 2026 to campus! We invite you to scroll through our photo and video galleries, and click on the links for highlights and stories on move-in days and welcome week events at campuses across the country.

For several Jesuit colleges and universities, the Class of 2026 is record-breaking, in terms of size (enrollment or applications) and/or diversity: College of the Holy Cross, Le Moyne College, Loyola University Maryland and The University of Scranton. International students are also arriving on our campuses, including those from Ukraine. A freshman at The University of Scranton recently shared his story with the local PBS / NPR affiliate near Scranton, PA; click here to learn more.
