More than 1,300 students make up the Class of 2003 as Rensselaer enrollment and the quality of the school's incoming students continue to rise.
  David Haviland '64, vice president for student life, notes improvements on all fronts. SAT scores are up 15 points, and record numbers of women (300), Rensselaer Medalists (205), and legacies (70) are enrolled.
  "We're just delighted with the Class of 2003," says Haviland. "As individuals, they will add value to Rensselaer. As a group, they tell us that our programs are right on target."
