Welcome, Incoming Class of 2016

Please join us in welcoming our incoming class of 72 GPB students and 6 MSTP, Year 1 PhD students.  This year, we received a record 1193 applications and our 10 Home Areas conducted 285 Interviews.  The diversity of the class continues to increase with 53% from other states and countries across the world, including 55 different undergraduate institutions, and 22% from groups underrepresented in the sciences.

During Orientation, students had the opportunity to get to know other students from different Home Areas.  View more pictures of our Orientation activities on our Facebook page.
