Texas Tech Sets Spring Enrollment Record

Texas Tech eclipsed another enrollment record as 29,604 students are on campus for classes during the 2011 spring semester. The number reflects an increase of 1,598 students over the previous record of 28,006 in spring 2010.

"One of the measures of a healthy university is the growth of its student body," said Guy Bailey, Texas Tech president. "We are encouraged at the direction we are heading and with the outstanding quality of our student population."

Spring semester numbers are traditionally smaller than those in the previous fall due to December graduation, but this spring's total ranks as the third overall largest enrollment by semester since the university opened its doors in 1925. The fall semesters in 2010 and 2009 rank first and second, respectively, both coming in above 30,000. [more]
