    in my year at college

    He was in my year at college.
    He and I were in the same year at college.

    These two sentences show that he and I started college in the same year. Now if I was to name the particular year, for instance, 2006, how should I get the '2006' into the sentence, or rather, where should I put the '2006' in the sentence?
    Is it 'He was in my year of 2006 at college' and 'He and I were in the same year of 2006 at college'?

    P.S. I know the use of class in 'He and I were in the class of 2010'. Can we say 'He and I were in the 2010 class'?

    We both started college in 2006.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    We were both in the class of 2010. The year is your final year, i.e., the year you graduated.
