According to University president Dr. Gary Ransdell, the school should slightly eclipse its previous enrollment mark of 18,600 last year.
"We'll be up at the undergraduate level. We're having to work our way through some competitive opportunities with our graduate enrollment. I think our overall numbers will be up slightly over the last year. I'm going to say maybe a hundred or two."
Ransdell says the school is expecting around four hundred freshman alone to begin classes this semester.
