Huntington Touts Record Enrollment

Posted: Updated:

Huntington University has set a new record for enrollment in the 2016-2017 academic year. The university is reporting 1,300 students, an increase of nearly 30 students over last year.

Huntington says of the 1,300 students, 916 are residential campus undergraduate students, 299 are graduate students and 85 are enrolled in professional programs. 

"We are excited about each one of the 1,300 students who are investing themselves at Huntington University," said Daniel Solms, vice president for enrollment management and marketing. "Whether it’s a recent high school graduate or a doctoral student, we count it a privilege to be part of the transformation that takes place in their lives through their education."

Huntington joins several other Indiana colleges and universities who have seen record enrollment this year. Among the others are Purdue University, Grace College, Holy Cross College, Manchester University and Trine University.
