    Final Enrollment Numbers

    Did a quick search on the ISU website, but couldn't find anything. With today being the first day of classes, does anyone know what the final enrollment numbers are for this year? Would be curious to see how much they have increased since last year and if we have finally surpassed Iowa.

    Just for reference, last years enrollment numbers per the ISU website (all of which were all time highs):

    Total students: 31,040
    Undergrad: 25,553
    Graduate: 5,487
    Freshman: 5,366

    More info from last year can be found here: Iowa State University enrollment tops 31,000 - News Service - Iowa State University

    Re: Final Enrollment Numbers

    It's not final yet. They released that notion a couple weeks ago.
    Wait a couple weeks.

    I can say this: the systems all act overloaded, and every classroom is booked solid.
    I had to move a classroom, and I'm glad that I did it months ago before it was too late.

    The place is packed. Things are overloaded. It's a record, but it won't be official for a couple weeks.

    Campus is packed. Figure a few Freshmen will give it up at semester. It's time for the school to get there act together and either expand campus resources (classrooms, dining centers, etc.) or have a temporary halt in trying to get to 35,000 students.

    Is 35,000 what the University said it wants to aim for as an annual enrollment?

    Re: Final Enrollment Numbers

    The official enrollment count is called the "10th-day" count because it's everyone who's still around and hasn't withdrawn yet on the 10th day of classes. So the university won't even compute their official enrollment until Friday, Sept. 6. I think it will be released to the public the following week.

    Re: Final Enrollment Numbers

    The official enrollment count at each Regent university is taken on the 10th day of classes and released by the Board of Regents Office the following day, so you'll hear the official enrollment count on Sept. 11. Unless the University of Iowa gets very creative and counts all the patients in their hospital, they will be the second largest university in Iowa this fall.

    They are doing these things to some extent; hiring more faculty (I believe Leath's goal is to hire 200 more faculty members), constructing new buildings (Troxel, ABE complex, Student innovation center and biosciences building in the near future), major remodeling of space in many older buildings (Mckay, lago, Marston, Curtiss, etc), global cafe in Curtiss (new dining option), five food carts across campus (including Battle's bbq), new apartments at Freddy, looking into building a new residence hall (just read it in the daily today). After that more land will likely need to be purchased if further growth is the goal.

    Re: Final Enrollment Numbers

    So how big is a campus like Michigan or Texas with 60k students? What does it look/feel like? Have not been to one of them, anyone have any insights?

    I just hope that's enough. Freddy units are good but they only added a few hundred beds. They need to work towards adding a couple thousand beds.

    Yea, I agree if growth does continue a new residence hall will be needed (Freddy will only add 720 beds). I think they're just wanting to make sure that growth and the number of people wanting to live on campus continues before they make an investment like that. At least that is what I got out of the article I read, sounded like they would decide within a year whether they will build it or not.

    The standards are pretty much the same they have been in recent history. There was somewhere around 5,000-6,000 (edit: 5,366) freshman admitted last year, and only 300 were below the RAI.
