ANGOLA -

Trine University in Angola says enrollment has hit an all-time high for the fourth straight year. The school says growing business, graduate and international student populations led to the record total.

In all, Trine is expecting about 4,800 students to be enrolled at its main campus, eight education centers and Peoria, Arizona campus. That is a 7 percent increase over last year. The majority of those students, about 3,650, will be enrolled at the main campus.

Trine is expecting 834 international students this fall, which is more than double last year's total of 365. The school says the number of graduate students is expected to jump to 592 from 338 in the fall of 2015. The Ketner School of Business is expecting 105 new students, up from 74 last year. That marks the largest class of new students in its history.

The northeast Indiana school is also moving forward with $4.5 million plans for the Thunder Ice Arena, which will house its new men's and women's hockey teams. In addition to the ice rink, it will include men's and women's locker rooms, concessions, a pro shop and other amenities. The university is also building a nearly 75,000 square-foot, 3,000-seat athletic and event center, which will host Trine men's and women's basketball games. That project is pegged at $11.5 million.

Trine's fall semester begins August. 22.
