The university reports 14,467 students were enrolled in its two summer sessions, compared to 13,575 for summer 2010, for a net increase of 892 students.
“More and more people are recognizing the great educational quality and value of a Kent State education,” said Kent State President Lester A. Lefton. “This past year, we have grown to become the second largest public university in the state of Ohio. We have increased our enrollment again this summer, and Kent State will continue growing into the fall as we’re expecting to welcome our largest freshman class at the Kent Campus in our university’s history. This is wonderful news for Kent State, our students, our employees and our communities that we serve.”
Kent State University’s eight campuses are located in Ashtabula, East Liverpool, Geauga, Kent, Salem, Stark, Trumbull and Tuscarawas.
