Yeshiva University will open its 72nd academic year tomorrow when inaugural classes are held in six of the university’s 17 schools and divisions in New York City. Classes will be held tomorrow in Yeshiva College, the university’s college of arts and sciences for men; the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary; Teachers Institute for Men, and the university’s three high schools.

The new academic year at Yeshiva will be marked by the opening of a new graduate school of mathematical sciences, expanded science facilities at its main center, and the largest enrollment in its history. The new year also will see the first commencement, in June, of the university Albert Einstein College of Medicine. More than 3,500 students are now enrolled at the university, with every one of the schools and divisions reporting an increase in registration.
