K-STATE SALINA TOTAL ENROLLMENT UP NEARLY 30 PERCENT
SALINA -- Total enrollment at Kansas State University Salina for the spring 2011 semester has increased nearly 30 percent from this time last year. The school also has seen almost a 20-percent increase in full-time enrollment.
This spring's total enrollment is 814, with a full-time enrollment of 474.
"This increase in students can be attributed to our recruitment and retention efforts," said Dennis Kuhlman, dean of K-State Salina. "As we increase degree offerings on the Salina campus, our numbers will only continue to grow."
K-State Salina will offer a bachelor's degree in social work and add the personal financial planning option to the bachelor's of family studies and human services when the fall semester begins in August. This is in addition to the seven bachelor's degrees currently offered on the Salina campus.
