Fewer Black Freshman at UK this Semester

While WKU is posting a record high enrollment this year, another Kentucky university is seeing lower numbers.

The University of Kentucky has more than six-percent fewer black freshmen students this year compared to last fall.

UK officials say this is because the school's overall freshman class is smaller this year.

School officials limited the number of incoming freshmen this year to improve student services.

Still, preliminary figures released Sept. 14 show the overall number of black students enrolled at the school is up by nearly 30 people.

Kentucky's public universities are still compiling enrollment data for 2007.

The final numbers won't be out until after Nov. 1.
