Bloomfield announces record incoming class

BLOOMFIELD, N.J. – Bloomfield College Vice President of Enrollment Management Adam Castro announced today the institution’s incoming class for the fall of 2013 will total 413 freshmen, the second highest total in school history.

The record contingent features an increased commitment to on-campus housing, with half of all incoming students currently living on the College’s grounds.

“We are very excited to welcome such a strong incoming class this year,” Castro said of the first-year students. “Students have joined our campus from all parts of the world. They are energetic, unique, motivated, and primed to do great things here.”

New student body members will be part of the first group to inhabit the institution’s state-of-the-art, 84,000-square-foot residence hall being constructed in the heart of Bloomfield Center, with the building set to welcome its first residents in September of 2014.

The new building is part of a concerted effort to revitalize Bloomfield Township’s historic downtown area, as well as solidify Bloomfield College as a premier higher education destination in the state of New Jersey. Prospective college students are taking notice of the increasing profile of the four-year, institution, as numbers for the College’s annual Fall Open House rose by 16% from the institution’s opening recruitment event the previous year.

“The Franklin Street Residence Hall project has caught the eye of prospective students and parents, and with good reason,” Castro said of the latest campus addition. “It is a truly impressive structure; a transformational project and a physical representation of the start of a new era here at Bloomfield. I could not be more enthusiastic about what the future holds for this great institution.”

A diverse institution offering over 60 majors and concentrations, Bloomfield College has recently been named among the best National Liberal Arts Colleges in the nation in U.S. News & World Report’s 2014 “Best Colleges” rankings, and was highlighted by Forbes Magazine as one of “America’s Top Colleges” in its 2014 results.
