Hi yguyon28;

Please see the comments in the code.

// The db is most likely a object of some DataContext such as a database
// This first line will Iterate through the Students table, Each iteration 
// will put a single student record into student.
var data = from student in db.Students
           // This next line will group the student records from the Students table 
           // into groups which have the same EnrollmentDate, so all Students within 
           // a single group will have the same in EnrollmentDate and dateGroup is 
           // an object that will contain all the groups.
           group student by student.EnrollmentDate into dateGroup
           // The EnrollmentDateGroup is a class with at miniumn two public properties, 
           // EnrollmentDate and StudentCount. One of these classes is created for each 
           // group in dateGroup. 
           select new EnrollmentDateGroup()
           {
               // The value of Key is the identification of each group which is 
               // EnrollmentDate
               EnrollmentDate = dateGroup.Key,
               // the value in StudentCount is the total number of students in a 
               // particular group.
               StudentCount = dateGroup.Count()
           };
           
// This seems to be an ASP MVC application so the results of the above query
// is being returned to the view for the function.           
return View(data);
