Calhoun's summer enrollment sets record
Calhoun Community College President Marilyn Beck announced Tuesday that the college reached a school record enrollment for the 2007 summer semester.
Beck said 5,182 students enrolled this summer semester, an increase of 407 students. This is more than 8.5 percent over last summer's enrollment.
"We are extremely pleased to see continued increases in our enrollment, particularly during the summer when students have so many other activities in which they are involved," Beck said. "As the largest of Alabama's two-year colleges, Calhoun continues to offer a quality education to our students at an affordable cost and at convenient times and locations, all contributing toward our continued enrollment increases."
Wayne Tosh, director of admissions and registrar, said the most significant increases are at the Huntsville/Cummings Research Park campus and in the college's distance education courses.
This is the first time the Huntsville campus has been able to offer day classes.
