SHSU Expecting Another Fall Enrollment Increase

In the past few years Sam Houston's enrollment has been steadily increasing. With more students coming in, there are more opportunities to make the changes that students, faculty and alumni want to see happening on campus, SHSU President James F. Gaertner explained.

As SHSU approaches the 2006 fall semester, the enrollment numbers are being watched closely, and with a goal of a 4 percent growth each year, SHSU is looking to keep the enrollment growth trend going strong.

"We want prospective students to visit the campus, because once they arrive and see how beautiful the campus is and how friendly people are they won't want to leave," said assistant director of Undergraduate Admissions Judy Smith.
