ASU sees record enrollment...again

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Arkansas State University could set another record enrollment for their spring semester.

According to unofficial results, ASU is reporting 12,411 students are enrolled at the Jonesboro campus for the spring 2010 semester.

That would break the record set last year with 12,185 students for the fall 2009 session.

The spring 2010 headcount is about 1,350 more students that this time last year, an increase of about 12.2% in one year.

If the count becomes official, it would be the first time in more than 30 years the spring enrollment would be higher than the fall enrollment at the ASU-Jonesboro campus.
