Summer Enrollment Jump Announced by Kent State University (07/08/2009)
More than 18 percent increase in summer students tallied over the eight-campus system

Kent State University officials today announced an 18.32 percent increase in summer enrollment across the university’s eight-campus system.

Total enrollment was measured at 12,424 students for summer session classes in the beginning of summer 2009 semester. In the summer of 2008, 10,500 students attended a Kent State University campus.

“I am gratified that more students who choose to further their educations over the summer choose a Kent State University campus, just as they chose us in higher numbers in the spring,” says Kent State University President Lester A. Lefton. “With our eight campuses bringing educational opportunities close to most Northeast Ohioans and a commitment to excellence that is second to none, Kent State continues a proud tradition of preparing Ohioans for success all year-round.”

The largest increase in the number of students was at the Kent Campus, which saw its enrollment rise by 603 students from summer 2008 to summer 2009. The largest percentage increase was at the Trumbull Campus, which enrolled 61.89 percent more students in summer 2009 over summer 2008.

“We’re delighted that in this difficult economy students continue to see the value in furthering their educational opportunities with us,” says Dr. Harold “Pete” Goldsmith, vice president for enrollment management and student affairs.

The university’s eight campuses include the Ashtabula, East Liverpool, Geauga, Kent, Salem, Stark, Trumbull and Tuscarawas campuses.
