the 2000-2001 academic year Wednesday, Sept. 20, greeting the
largest freshman class in over ten years. First-year enrollment
is up 11.2 percent over last year with 5,087 freshman starting at
UC this fall.

of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning, UC's main library
(Langsam Library), and the medical and law libraries.
Physically, the campus is also changing dramatically this year
with the fall opening of Campus Green, one of the largest green
space projects developed at UC and the construction of temporary
facilities for food, entertainment and student services.
