ASHLAND, Ore. – Enrollment figures for the fall 2012 semester at Southern Oregon University are making history.
This semester marks the 2nd largest enrollment period in institutional history. Although a record amount of students enrolled this semester, the university’s provost, James Klein, says they don’t plan on adding more professors.
“We’ve added quite a few over the last three years so this year I think we will actually hire fewer than normal since we’ve got so many,” Klein explained.
Majors like Psychology, Business and Theatre display the most growth in students over the last three years, but while the college has a record number of new students, the total number of students who go there, has dropped by 263; that’s the biggest shrink of all seven public university campuses.
