Here they come . . .

The 2001-02 school year at U.Va. begins Aug. 25, when approximately 2,985 first-year students move into their residence halls.

Beginning shortly before 8 a.m. on Saturday, heavily burdened cars will pull up in front of the nearly 40 residence halls where the students will live. Upperclass students wearing “Greeters” T-shirts will welcome families and assist the students.

The class of 2005, with approximately 2,985 first-year students, will comprise about 345 Asian-American, 272 African-American and 79 Hispanic-American students and about 167 international students. About 520 new transfer students are also expected.

Just over 67 percent, or 2,018 students, will be Virginia residents. The male-female percentage is about 46 and 54, respectively. Slightly more than 80 percent of the in-coming students were ranked in the top 10 percent of their class.

U.Va. police estimate that the annual “Move-In Day” will bring about 5,000 cars and 12,000 people to Grounds on Saturday. About 20 police officers will be on duty from approximately 6:45 a.m. to 3 p.m. along Emmet, McCormick, Stadium and Alderman roads to assist in traffic flow.
