Northwestern University officials say the this fall’s freshman class has higher test scores and more minority students than last year’s class.

Michael Mills, the associate provost for University enrollment, told the Daily Northwestern this class’s average SAT score was up 10 points, to 1439. And 90 percent of entering students this fall had been in the top 10 percent of their high school class, compared to 85 percent last year.

Mills said the number of black students in this year’s freshman class is the highest in more than 10 years, going from 87 students last year to 132 this year.

Hispanic/Latino student enrollment increased slightly, to 140 students from last year’s 135.
