LARAMIE (AP) - For the second year in a row, fall
enrollment at the University of Wyoming campus is at nearly 13,000 students.
UW census counted 12,920 students enrolled for fall classes on the Laramie campus.
UW Vice President for Student Affairs Sara Axelson says total enrollment will surpass 13,000 by the end of the semester as Outreach enrollment continues to grow. UW's 2011 enrollment is bolstered by a 4 percent increase from a year ago in new freshmen enrollment and another increase in international student enrollment.
The university has 1,534 new freshmen, an increase of 59
students from 2010. For the fourth consecutive year, UW's international student enrollment has increased, this time to 754 students.
Wyoming resident enrollment remained steady at 71 percent of the UW student population.
