Enrollment up 15% – Nearly 3,000 Students

I’ve just received the fall enrollment numbers and they look wonderful, with a total enrollment reaching nearly 3,000 students.

Few private colleges have gained in enrollment this year, and we are up 15% overall, and have increased nearly 5% among our traditional age students on the Jackson campus.

Our adult programs in Jackson, Memphis, Orlando, and Houston are up 15% to 19% on each of those campuses. And we have seen a dramatic jump in our graduate programs and our online program.

I know that God has hand picked every student He wants to be at Belhaven this year, and we thank the Lord for entrusting these students to us.

Here are the specific numbers by campus and program with a comparison to last year’s enrollment:

  1. God is good….all the time! What a blessing to have so many new students. And from all across the globe – we have 20 new international students this year!

    The admission team is thankful to all those that helped recruit this class. We couldn’t have done it without your help.

    We’ve already begun working with the 2010 class. Look for us in a city near you!

  2. God’s grace and His mercy transcends times and circumstances. The economy is no surprise to God and neither is His mercy to His people. God is good all the time and Belhaven College is a testimony.
