FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — A record number of freshmen are hitting the books at
Northern Arizona University this fall, the Arizona Daily Sun reported.
Nearly 5,000 students have enrolled in the school’s freshmen class, school
officials said. Preliminary figures show enrollment received a 5 percent bump
over the previous year.
University officials say they are pleased that this year’s incoming freshmen
appear more diverse and have a slightly higher average GPA than in recent years.
“Our incoming class also has a higher mix of ethnicities and international
students, which makes for a stronger and more dynamic learning environment,”
Public Affaris Director Tom Bauer said.
