Freshmen, returning veterans, graduate students contribute to growth
Cleveland State University announced today that Fall semester enrollment figures have reached a 15-year high, with total student headcount at 16,418 (a 4.2 percent increase over Fall 2008). The increase can be attributed to a number of positive factors at the University, including the ongoing completion of new campus facilities that make CSU an attractive residential choice for new freshmen, the Project SERV program that caters to returning post-911 veterans, and a surge in graduate students seeking professional degrees in a difficult economic climate.
Highlights of the incoming Fall 2009 class at CSU include:
“The across-the-board increases in all categories of students speak to the tremendous progress CSU has made in developing attractive programs, along with new and updated facilities that address the needs of students today. Our progress with the incoming class reflects the changing residential nature of our campus, which is giving life to a completely new neighborhood of students in the heart of Cleveland,” said CSU President Ronald M. Berkman.
