Bryant University is excited to welcome the incoming Class of 2025 to campus. Selected from nearly 7,000 applicants, the members of the class have already begun to make their mark through their academic accomplishments, commitment to leadership, and strength of character. Over the course of the next four years, they’ll prepare to become the next generation of game changers and impact thinkers.
“Every Bryant student brings something special to the University and the Class of 2025 is no different,” notes Michelle L. Cloutier, Vice President for Enrollment Management. “Their many gifts and diverse perspectives will enrich all of us on campus as they ready themselves to become the professionals, and people, the world needs.”
A caring, collegial community
The 673 members of the Class of 2025 will soon join a close-knit community dedicated to helping them create their paths to success and reach their fullest potential. Inspired to excel, they’ll reach higher and achieve more than they ever thought possible.
