NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- A new era began at The College of New Rochelle (CNR) when it welcomed its first coeducational freshman class to the School of Arts & Sciences. The students were greeted on campus during Freshman Convocation on Sept. 6. Having accepted only women since its founding 112 years ago, dozens of men have been registered for the 2016-17 school year. With the transition, CNR has attracted students from all over the nation. So far, over fifty men have enrolled in the College. Additionally, an increased number of women – who would not consider an all-women school – have enrolled at CNR, making this the largest freshman class in 30 years.
