BGSU enrollment reaches record heights

 Bowling Green has reached a record high enrollment this fall, attaining institutional goals of increasing the number of students of color, out-of-state students and students with ACT scores of 30 or higher in the freshman class.

Contributing to the highest-ever total enrollment of 21,071—up by 96 students from a year ago—has been the return of 79.1 percent of last fall’s record-setting class of first-year students. The retention rate has climbed from 77.9 percent last year and 74 percent in 2003.

“We believe that our first-year programs, new scholarships, improved advising and outreach are large factors in this increase,” said Dr. Alberto Gonzalez, vice provost for academic services.
