Consultant Advises ASU on How to Increase Enrollment

JANUARY 19, 2005 - Posted at 10:29 a.m. CST

JONESBORO, AR - A consultant report says Arkansas State University should look to expand its enrollment.  The report says the Jonesboro campus should also work to ensure it is doing its best to accomodate nontraditional students.

The university says that 20 years ago it had fewer than ten percent non-traditional students, but now non-traditional students comprise more than 25 percent of ASU's student body.  Those are students who do not go straight to college from high school.

The report also says ASU should hire more Web designers.
