PITTSFORD, N.Y. — Nazareth University welcomed 600 freshman and transfer students on Wednesday during move-in day.

The new students represent 20 different states. Nazareth’s class of 2027 will be the first to start their journey at the school with it designated as a university instead of a college.

The school is holding a welcome picnic, candlelight ceremony, and carnival style festival to welcome the new students. Nazareth freshman Micah Smith says he’s excited to start the new school year.

“I’m really excited for the future, I feel like every time I’ve been on this campus so far, it’s like I feel welcomed. So I’m really excited and I’m just glad to adjust,” Smith said.

Freshman and transfer students have already moved into the Rochester Institute of Technology. Nazareth University, The State University of New York at Brockport, Monroe Community College, St. John Fisher University, and the University of Rochester all start classes in the next week or two.
