Shawnee State Record Enrollment
(WOUB) - Shawnee State University has hit a record high for enrollment this semester.

The preliminary numbers show a total of 3,976 students, representing a 7.5 percent increase.

The increase in full time students is 10 percent.

University President Rita Morris expects the final tally of students for this semester to break the 4,000 mark.

Morris believes that the cause for the spike in numbers is the result of recruiting efforts aimed at drawing students from around the state and beyond.
