19 Sep HU Experiences Largest-Ever Enrollment: 1321 Students
Huntington University’s fall enrollment is the largest in its 120-year history: 1,321 students. It also marks four consecutive years of enrollment growth, and an increase of 21 students over the 2016 total.
Here’s how it breaks down:
- 913 traditional undergraduate students at Huntington’s main campus in Huntington, Ind.
- 87 undergraduate students at its Peoria, Arizona, location.
- 79 adult students enrolled in professional programs.
- 242 graduate students.
Looking a little deeper: the student body includes 131 ethnic minorities from the United States (12% of the total students), and 47 international students from 24 different countries.
With the launch of the Haupert Institute for Agricultural Studies in 2015, there are now 39 declared agriculture majors. In addition, 100 students are currently studying toward the Doctorate of Occupational Therapy.
“What a joy to see so many students and their families seeing the value of a Huntington University degree!” said Dr. Sherilyn Emberton, president of Huntington University. “This past year demonstrated a piqued interest in academic programs at Huntington, as evidenced by a 20 percent increase in campus visits. We look forward to continuing this trajectory and telling the Forester story.”
