JONESBORO, AR - Preliminary and unofficial spring semester enrollment numbers for Arkansas State University's Jonesboro campus show a significant increase compared to a year ago and a near record, university officials said today.

Positive trends in the enrollment statistics also show that university initiatives are working, according to Dr. Rick Stripling, vice chancellor for student affairs.

The unduplicated headcount for all instructional sites associated with ASU-Jonesboro stands at 10,055, an increase of 237 students from last spring.  The increase is the largest spring-to-spring boost in at least 14 years and the second highest spring semester enrollment in history, according to university records.

ASU's record enrollment was set in 1993, with 10,538 students.
