The University of Evansville says current enrollment of nearly 2,700 students is the highest level in a decade. The school says enrollment is also up at Harlaxton College, its overseas campus near Grantham, England.
With the Spring Semester 2012 underway, the University of Evansville is proud to announce record-setting enrollment figures, including strong freshman retention on UE’s main campus and historic enrollment overseas at Harlaxton College.
Total enrollment currently stands at 2,696, the highest in a decade. Traditional undergraduate enrollment is at its highest since 2007.
“We’re thrilled to see growth on campus, as well as a successful freshman class that has largely returned for the spring semester,” said Tom Bear, UE vice president for enrollment services. “These kinds of numbers, particularly in an economic climate that remains challenging, demonstrate the quality and value of a UE education.”
The historic enrollment trends continue across the ocean at Harlaxton College, UE’s British campus near Grantham, England. UE student enrollment at Harlaxton has increased 11 percent from last spring, with 122 UE students currently studying at Harlaxton. The total number of students at Harlaxton, including those from partner institutions, is 185 — the highest since 1989.
