Students officially welcomed by Brooklyn College

The first day of classes at Brooklyn College kicked off Thursday.



Some freshmen said they were eager to start a new chapter in their life, while others said that they were nervous.



One student told News 12 that it's exciting to be on a new campus with new people, while another found it a little stressful to see so many other people.



Brooklyn College said it has more than 1,200 freshmen starting this school year.



School officials held a welcoming meeting to encourage new students to join extracurricular activities and get involved with organizations around campus. They also touted the school's study abroad program.
