Classes have begun at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology with a record 643 first-year students, a 17% increase from last year’s class. The STEM-focused school in Terre Haute says total enrollment for the fall semester is at more than 2,100 students.
The school says the median high school GPA of the incoming class is 4.06. More than 10% of the freshman class were ranked in the top three of their high school class. Rose-Hulman says 50 students achieved perfect SAT or ACT math scores.
“We’ve also broadened our recruiting network, with alumni and the campus community more actively involved in the process, and refined our marketing and outreach efforts,” said Rose-Hulman President Robert Coons. “All of these adjustments have helped us succeed this year and have put us on a pathway for sustained enrollment success in the future.”
Rose-Hulman says 89% of students have been vaccinated and 86% of faculty and staff have filed proof of the shots. The school says those who are not vaccinated must undergo bi-weekly COVID-19 testing
