HASTINGS, Neb. — Hastings College says it has a preliminary enrollment of nearly 350 first-year students this fall — making it the largest first-year class in the private school's 131-year history.

The four-year liberal arts institution said the addition of transfer students means officials will welcome more than 400 new students to campus during an upcoming orientation.

Hastings College offers 64 majors in 32 areas of study and 12 pre-professional programs. It begins classes Monday.
