MOBILE, Ala. — The University of South Alabama reached a record fall enrollment with 15,007 students, USA President Gordon Moulton announced today.
In the past decade, said Moulton, the university’s enrollment has risen 30 percent.
“It’s a strong indicator of the quality of the university and faculty,” Moulton said.
Moulton also attributed the increase to the variety of majors USA offers. “Combine that with a great cost factor and you could see how” the school could set another new record enrollment, said Moulton.
The school also set a record number of undergraduate students, 11,658, and a record number of students residing on campus.
USA’s 2010 fall freshman class came from 200 high schools around the nation.
