“School's (Not) Out for Summer,” an article just published on Inside Higher Ed, reports that enrollment at American public colleges and universities is booming this summer.
Here’s a glimpse at what’s happening in summer sessions . . .
- University of Texas Dallas – Enrollment is up 5.3 percent this year, to 6,751 students.
- University of Missouri St. Louis – Up 4.6 percent, to 5,012 students.
- Eastern Michigan University – Up 7.8 percent, to 5,775 students.
And similar growth is happening at the University of Central Florida, the University of California (Berkeley), Boise State University, The Community College of Vermont and other institutions.
Why the boom? Jennifer Epstein, author of the Inside Higher Ed article, explains: “Many public colleges and universities were overrun this year by larger-than-ever enrollments driven up by economics and demographics, and early signs suggest that this summer will approach or pass record highs.”
There’s no question about it – American students have become much more value-conscious since the hard times hit. We are proud that our summer classes are helping them achieve their educational goals without breaking the bank.
