In a press release, Kent State University officials today announced a more than 18 percent increase in summer enrollment across the university’s eight-campus system.

Total enrollment was measured at 12,424 students for this year’s summer classes, compared to the 10,500 students who attended a Kent State University campus last summer.

The largest increase in the number of students was at the Kent Campus, which saw its enrollment rise by 603 students. The largest percentage increase was at the Trumbull Campus, which enrolled 61.89 percent more students in summer 2009 over summer 2008.

“We’re delighted that in this difficult economy students continue to see the value in furthering their educational opportunities with us,” said Dr. Harold “Pete” Goldsmith, vice president for enrollment management and student affairs.
