READING, Pa. -

Albright College in Reading is welcoming its largest freshmen class ever.

More than 675 freshmen moved into their residence halls on Thursday.

The class of 2017 is 60 percent larger than the class of 2016, school officials said.

One reason for the huge spike, school officials said, is Albright's new financial aid policy.

The school has promised to meet 100 percent of the institutionally determined need of its incoming freshmen.
