College enrollment on the rise

Following on the heels of an increase in fall enrollment, the spring semester for Howard College has set yet another record for the district with spring enrollment numbers at 5,115.

“Reaching the 5,000 enrollment mark for the district is an outstanding achievement for Howard College,” said Dr. Cheryl T. Sparks, President. “This growth is the result of a tremendous amount of work on all campuses and shows the effectiveness of our partnerships throughout the region.”

The Big Spring campus enrollment tallied in at 1,828, representing an 8 percent increase over the spring 2010 semester, while the Lamesa campus bounced back from a fall decrease and realized a 2 percent increase.
