Huntington University is seeing an increase in students for the fall semester. The school is reporting a 5 percent increase from 2014. Huntington says it is the largest enrollment in five years.
The fall 2015 enrollment numbers include:
Residential Campus Undergrads – 934
Professional Programs – 78
Graduate Students – 261 (+126 from 2014)
Total Enrollment – 1273 (+64 from 2014)
“We are thankful for the students who have chosen to join the Huntington University community. It’s a privilege to be able to speak into the lives of our undergraduates as they develop and partner with our graduates as they work toward their goals. It’s the largest enrollment of the last five years for Huntington University. I am happy for the faculty and staff who have worked very hard to help us reach this goal,” Vice President for enrollment management & marketing Daniel Solms said.
School officials say there are 47 international students this year, which is an increase from 38 students in 2014. They say the growth in the graduate programs was driven by several factors including a second entering class of doctoral occupational therapy students.
