For the sixth consecutive year, a record freshman class is one of the enrollment records at Southern Arkansas University this fall. The number of SAU freshmen this semester is up to 901, up again from last year’s record freshman class of 870. SAU is also experiencing the highest undergraduate enrollment in its history at 3,546, up 102 students.
Another SAU enrollment record is the number of students choosing to live on campus at 1,950, which is up 100 students over last year’s record of 1,850. Aramark Food Service is reporting a six percent increase in students on the meal plan from last fall as well.
“We are once again proud of our entire Mulerider family – faculty, staff, current students, alumni and friends,” said SAU President Dr. Trey Berry. “It’s been the commitment of everyone to foster our ‘culture of caring’ at SAU that has been the foundation to maintain this positive enrollment trend for our University.” (more…)
