 Anderson University Enrollment Even Higher than Record Projections

Official numbers push university over the 2500 mark for the first time in history

Now that final enrollment numbers have been tabulated at Anderson University, the official enrollment number is 2,507 students, an increase of 227 students over last year’s official figure of 2,280.

With an all-time record number of freshmen and transfers on campus, administrators expected enrollment to climb near the 2,400 mark, but increases in the university’s graduate and ACCEL evening programs pushed that number beyond the 2,500 mark, representing an increase in enrollment of ten percent in just one year.

“Our enrollment was up significantly in every category,” said University president, Dr. Evans Whitaker.

The University’s strategic plan adopted in 2004 called for the university to grow to 2,200 students by the year 2014. That goal has been eclipsed by 300 - four years ahead of schedule.
