LU sets record enrollment


Recommended Posts

Lamar University has set an all-time enrollment record this fall with 14,889 students, college officials announced today.


That is a 6.1 percent increase from last fall, the university reported.


"In large measure, the growth was due to sharp jumps in international students, graduate engineering enrollments, and on-line graduate education students," said Kevin Smith, senior associate provost in a prepared statement.


This fall, Lamar saw increases in new first-time-in-college freshmen (up 1.2 percent over last fall), transfer students (up 32.8 percent), and graduate students (up 119.1 percent), the university reported.
