The University of New Hampshire says close to 3,400 first-year students are entering the school this fall — its largest incoming class ever.
This year's first-year class saw an increase of 7 percent in the number of in-state students over last year, up to over 1,400. President Mark Huddleston says UNH attributes that at least partially to the restoration of state funding that allowed the school to freeze in-state tuition for two years.
Previously, the largest class to enter the university was in 2006 with 3,079 students.
The first day of classes is Sept. 2.
