Cincinnati -- The University of Cincinnati opens its doors for 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.

The incoming class will also be the most technologically advanced ever. First-year students in the College of Engineering are required to have a laptop computer equipped for wireless communication by the end of the academic year. That will allow them to take full advantage of the college's new wireless network.

The Office of Information Technologies is expanding wireless service to other areas of campus as well, including the College 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.
