Rose State College spring enrollment jumps
MIDWEST CITY — Spring semester enrollment of first-time students at Rose State College is up 15.6 percent from one year ago, President Jeanie Webb announced Monday.
“We are seeing an increase in adults coming back to school to further their education or get a second degree,” Webb said in the announcement. “Rose State has a tradition of providing quality programs which equates to quality jobs – this growth reflects the value of our degree.”
A total of 7,957 students — 1,049 of them first-timers — enrolled in classes this semester. That represents an increase of more than 1 percent overall from last year.
Rose State's first on-campus housing opened last fall with a maximum-capacity 170 residents. That continues to be an effective recruiting tool, attracting students from across the state, officials said.
