ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

The new freshmen class at Cedar Crest College hasn't started classes yet but already it's making history.

The class of 2018 is expected to be the largest class at Cedar Crest since 2009.

Students began their freshmen orientation today by participating in what the school calls its "Open Door Ceremony".

Orientation will go on through Sunday and will include a class photo, a day of service, the annual Strawberry Festival, and a Convocation on Sunday.
