OU hits new summer enrollment record
Oakland University set an all-time summer enrollment record with an increase of 11 percent over summer 2002.
Oakland’s official headcount for summer 2003 is 5,077 students. The undergraduate student headcount is up by nearly 6 percent over last summer, and the graduate student headcount is up by 27 percent over last year’s totals.
“Our commitment to providing a quality education, combined with a keen public perception that a university degree is a distinct advantage in today’s society, has enabled us to set this new enrollment record,” said OU President Gary Russi. “Moreover, our rising stature as a model university and the numerous infrastructure and student life improvements we’ve made continue to draw students to our campus in record numbers.”
The summer semester ends Aug. 16. The fall 2003 semester begins Tuesday, Sept. 2. SAIL (Web and telephone) registration for undergraduates begins Aug. 21 and continues through Sept. 2. SAIL (Web) registration continues for graduate students through Aug. 20.
