LSU Eunice Experiences Three Percent Growth
EUNICE - Enrollment for the fall 2010 semester at Louisiana State University Eunice was up three percent over the fall of 2009, according to final regular fall semester enrollment figures released by the university's registrar's office.
Enrollment is 3,431 students, setting a record for the university's all-time enrollment. The previous top enrollment record was 3,332 students set last fall.
"The Fall of 2010 student enrollment at LSU Eunice grew by nearly three percent reflecting the confidence which students and their families have in the campus and it's programmatic quality," said LSU Eunice Chancellor William Nunez.
LSU Eunice reported having 2,236 first-time freshman, 644 sophomores (30 plus credit hours) and 551 unclassified students, which include students with more than 60 credits.
Students from 57 parishes are enrolled in LSU Eunice classes, including off-campus classes. Parishes with 20 or more students attending the university this fall are St. Landry, 771; Acadia, 496; Evangeline, 375; Lafayette, 255; Rapides, 231; Vermilion, 158; Jeff Davis, 87; Iberia, 89; Grant, 86; St. Martin, 81; Allen, 66; Calcasieu, 59; East Baton Rouge, 51; Avoyelles, 45; and St. Mary, 33.
"Despite the budget cuts of the past, and the ones which may yet be forthcoming, LSU Eunice remains an outstanding higher education value for Louisianans," said Nunez. "LSU Eunice continues to offer quality education at less than half the cost of a four-year campus."
