"'She's probably in there hugging everyone,' Anne said with a smile, dropping a Bed, Beth & Beyond bag on the sorority house porch and heading back to the van to get another load. Katherine, 19, was moving back to campus from her home in Cincinnati. Her sorority sister Jennifer Zgorka, 21, a junior, was coming back to school from Munster."

Jamie Barrand writes, "DePauw's total enrollment this year stands at just under 2,400 students -- 625 of which are new. Students converged on the campus all weekend, setting up house in their dorm, sorority and fraternity house rooms." The report adds, "Of the 625 new students at the university, 77 are international -- a record for DePauw."2008 Opening Convocation 4.jpg
