It doesn’t solve our budget problems, but it certainly helps mitigate some of the negative effects. And, hopefully, it helps remind everyone that more and more people are recognizing the value of a UT degree.
Some local colleges break enrollment records
At UT, spring enrollment of 20,775 stu-dents is a 5.4 percent increase over the 19,709 enrolled in spring, 2008.
Part of the reason is a larger fall class, which stayed through this spring. The university’s continuing student base is up 4.6 percent, said Kevin Kucera, UT’s associate vice president of enrollment services.
UT also had increases in new adult students and transfer students.
