The College of the Holy Cross is excited to welcome Sasha Bornhorst of Charlestown as a member of the College’s Class of 2027.

At 825 students, the Class of 2027 includes students from 38 states and territories and 12 nations across the globe. This year’s incoming class is made up of 53 percent women and 47 percent men, with 29 percent of students of color and 15 percent as proud first-generation college students.

The new Crusaders have distinguished themselves through community service, leadership roles, and diverse participation in areas like the arts, music and athletics.

They arrived on campus and moved into the residence halls on Saturday, August 26th, where they were welcomed to Mount St. James by an enthusiastic purple crew of current students, staff, faculty and alumni. Fall classes began on Tuesday, August 29th.

“I am thrilled to welcome Holy Cross’ Class of 2027, a vibrant and diverse group of exceptional students,” said Holy Cross President Vincent Rougeau. “You chose Holy Cross, where classes are small and the community is vibrant and ready for your contributions. Here, you will be encouraged to speak up and engage. You will have your certainties challenged and perspectives broadened. And trust me, you will thrive.”
