Two colleges in Indiana are reporting increased enrollment. Trine University says 2017 is the fourth consecutive year of record attendance at its main campus in Angola, education centers and global partnership campus. Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College says new student enrollment jumped 45 percent, compared to last year.

Trine credits the rise to a 15 percent main campus enrollment increase, a 30 percent larger freshman class, which now consists of over 600, and a more than one-third increase in dual enrollment students. President Earl Brooks II says "it's encouraging as Trine University's enrollment continues to grow that we are attracting a higher quality student."

SMWC says its growing new student class is made up of 132 freshman and 39 transfer students. In all, the Wabash Valley school is now home to 741 students, almost equally divided between on-campus and online. More than 200 graduate students are currently enrolled at SMWC.
