    Dr. Trey Berry, president of Southern Arkansas University, told the SAU System Board of Trustees that enrollment of freshmen could again reach record numbers this fall, during the Board’s regular meeting Friday, Aug. 11, at SAU.

    Berry said “the trajectory is right for record freshman enrollment. The signs are very positive. Signs also point to a very good undergraduate enrollment. We’ll have better figures after enrollment happens.”

    The new freshmen are coming from 40 states and 19 nations. SAU’s fall 2016 enrollment was 4,771. About 1,900 students will live on campus this fall. Move-In Day at SAU will be Aug. 20 and classes begin Wednesday, Aug. 23. (more…)
