Enrollment up at UNM-LA

-A A +A
By Bonnie Gordon

The number of students choosing to return to UNM-Los Alamos this fall increased by an incredible 38.59 percent this fall over 2007 numbers according to UNM-LA Institutional Researcher Valida Dushdurova.

Most of these returning students are enrolled full-time, Dushdurova said. The full headcount is not yet complete for the Fall 2008 semester, but so far, overall enrollment numbers are up slightly compared to Fall 207.

The news at UNM-LA’s Bernalillo Site looks especially good, with overall enrollment numbers up 8 percent over last year

“This is great news,” said UNM-LA Dean of Instruction Dr. Kate Massengale. “The number of high school seniors has fallen off in recent years due to population demographics. The fact that we are increasing enrollment at this time means students are discovering what UNM-LA has to offer and choosing us.”

Massengale attributed the high number of returning students to two factors. First, she said, once students come to UNM-LA, they find they want to stay here.

“Our faculty, is not only highly qualified, they really care about students,” she said. ”Our instructors are focused on teaching and every student is important to them.UNM-LA’s average 10:1 student to teacher ratio means that students get the individual attention they need,” Massengale said.
