INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Wednesday was a big day at the University of Indianapolis in more than one way.

The school celebrated their largest incoming freshman class ever and Wednesday morning they got a warm welcome during the annual tradition known as Move-In Day.

Hundreds of faculty, staff and student volunteers helped incoming students and their families as they arrived on campus.

The school says it currently has a 94-percent placement rate for graduates. U-Indy’s President says there are a couple reasons why.

“One is good solid liberal arts and professional experience. And that’s in the classroom. And the other is through our professional ed center which connects our alumni and our students early on as early as freshman so that they can set their aspirations, now what a profession’s going to be like, and then prepare themselves along the way”, said Rob Manuel U-Indy President.

At least 930 freshmen are enrolled this year. That’s a 16-percent increase over last year. The freshmen are also likely to set a new record with their combined GPA, currently projected at 3.47 on a 4.0 scale.

Classes are set to begin on Monday. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
