(Wyo)-UW Expecting Record Freshman Enrollment
The University of Wyoming is predicting the largest freshman class in its 130-year history this fall, with enrollment expected to be about 200 higher than last fall when there were about 150 fewer freshmen than in 2015.
Wyoming also expects the number of transfer students to increase by about 100. Goals adopted in the past year call for freshman enrollment to grow by 2% each year and transfer enrollment to go up 5%.
University officials attribute the boost to outreach efforts. UW staff members were in 3-4ths of the state's high schools on May 1 - the day students officially committed to attending.
UW is also releasing scholarship notices faster and putting faculty in touch with admitted or even just interested students.
