Great things are happening in the state of Colorado. State colleges are reporting that current enrollment is at an all-time high, with Colorado Mesa University leading the way as the fastest-growing school.
There are several possibilities for why Colorado colleges are seeing record enrollment. There could be a population bubble of college-aged people in the state; there may not be many jobs available; or there could be a sudden ‘thirst knowledge. No matter the reason, if you step foot on a Colorado college campus, you should notice an increase in student population.
Colorado Mesa University leads the pack in enrollment increases, posting its third year of a double digit percent increase. Adams State in Alamosa brought in the highest number of freshman in 40 years. Likewise, Colorado State University welcome more than 4,500 freshman this week, the highest number ever for its Fort Collins campus. Other colleges also saw modest growth.
College campus growth is even more peculiar in today’s economy. Decreased resources have required tuition hikes all over the nation. The University of Colorado at Boulder saw tuition jump 9.3 percent for the year, with other colleges seeing similar increases.
Colorado continues to be home to some of the best post-secondary education in the nation, and the desire for that knowledge shows in this year’s record enrollment across the state.
