University of Wyoming agricultural student enrollment sets record
February 24, 2011
Enrollment has topped 1,000 for the first time at the University of Wyoming College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
The college recorded 1,005 students in the fall, the time the university officially recognizes enrollment numbers. Total enrollment, which included 833 undergraduates and 172 graduate students, increased from 938 last year. There were 784 undergraduates and 154 graduate students last year.
“It was just two years ago the college wondered how long it might take to reach the 900 threshold, a record total enrollment, and now we have surpassed 1000, with record enrollments at the undergraduate and graduate levels,” said Jim Wangberg, associate dean and director of the Office of Academic and Student Programs. “Quality academic programs, excellence in teaching and advising and a faculty and staff commitment to student success have contributed to this growth.”
The most undergraduate students were in animal and veterinary sciences (209) followed by family and consumer sciences (178). The most graduate students were also in animal and veterinary sciences (25) followed by molecular and cellular life sciences (24) and molecular biology and rangeland ecology and watershed management (both 23).
