    Eactly. All of my sisters roommates in Iowa City were girls from the Chicago suburbs whom had Iowa as their second choice after Illinois wasn't going to work out for them.

    Re: official enrollment numbers

    The best number here is incoming freshmen from the state of Iowa:

    Iowa State: 3,540
    Iowa: 2,134

    It isn't even close. More and more young people from here want to be Iowa Staters - far more than Hawkeyes.

    I'm not so sure their decrease was on purpose. ISU's growth is primarily due to the ag industry being well-off right now and a demand for engineers, if the ag industry takes a dive or the demand for engineers starts to decrease ISU could possibly have some difficulty maintaining growth or could even see some decrease, there is a lot of uncertainty especially with the ag industry so who knows what will happen. At any rate I've heard several times from university officials that campus in its current set-up can't handle much more than 35,000 students so I assume enrollment would be capped there if it reaches that point in the near future. In the long-range if it can obtain some more land for facilities enrollment could increase once again

    University of Iowa 31,067 + 26500 = 57567
    Iowa State University 33,241

    Univ of Northern Iowa 12,159
    Looks to me like:

    University of Iowa 31,067 + 26,500 + 12,159 = 69,726
    Iowa State University 33,241

    I actually don't know if they can do this. ISU and UofI have historically had the same entrance requirements set by the BOR. Now, I'm not apposed to all 3 universities raising their entrance requirements - but you have to be careful about not excluding people who actually are capable college students that didn't catch on fast enough in HS (or had a difficult living situation/other events that lowered grades).

    If that happens would they limit out of state enrollment more? I could see that as a solution. This is a ways away, however, I think.

I meant that if a student taking one class and a student that is full time both figure into that number, then the full-time equivalency is saying that 4 students taking 3 credits each count as one student in the FTE. Either way, it is a much bigger number than I might have expected.

    No chance this happens. Out-of-state tuition brings money into the state. UI, ISU, UNI and all the private colleges have a duty to educate as many Iowans as they can. Unfortunately, due to the outflux of educated, young Iowans, Iowa needs to take more chances on fringe candidates in hopes that they stay in the Iowa workforce.

    IMO, the university needs to focus on increasing graduation rates, particularly with worthless degrees. These people aren't receiving any sort of specialized skill or education, anyway. They are going to start at entry level at something unrelated, at least give them the tool to let them earn advancement.

    I read "total credit enrollment" as taking at least one class, but IANAE

    Re: official enrollment numbers

    What an amazing work Iowa State has done to push enrollment numbers up when many other institutions (especially small privates) are struggling to find new students. Kudos to all the people who works in admissions. Iowa State's welcoming environment and low cost certainly attracts students from surrounding states. Iowa State really has done nice job recruit and retain students to the university.

    Re: official enrollment numbers

    A few Iowa students I know said that Iowa capped their enrollment this year. I asked for a source..no reply. Nice try..


    ďI told you, I donít care if youíre black or white. I donít care if youíre rich or poor. I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    Re: official enrollment numbers

    A few other interesting tidbits:

    ISU's undergraduate enrollment exceeds U of I's by more than 5,000.

    Nonresidents make up 53% of the U of I's new freshman enrollment this fall, so Iowa residents continue to be the minority there (can you say University of Western Illinois?).
