From the west coast to the east coast, Virginia State University (VSU) welcomed nearly 1,000 new freshmen to the Land of Troy. The Class of 2020 represents a 30 percent increase from last year’s freshman class. VSU has projected an overall enrollment increase of five percent for Fall 2016.
“It's a new year and a new season for Virginia State University,” said VSU President Makola Abdullah. “I am confident that our faculty and staff will assist the Class of 2020 and the rest of the Trojan student body succeed and transform their academic experience beyond their dreams and aspirations. We pride ourselves as a university whose role is to provide a transformative experience for our students and embrace our role as Virginia’s opportunity university."
The Class of 2020 is the first class under Abdullah’s administration.
