Fall college enrollment increases

Final fall enrollment totals show an 11.11 percent increase in student numbers at Williston State College from the fall of 2012.

According to a press release issued by the two-year college, there are 909 students enrolled, compared with 808 last fall. Scheduled credit hours and full-time enrollment are also up by 9.35 percent each.

“We’re very pleased with the increase,” said Kayla McKeil, director for marketing, in the press release. “Williston is growing and that means more people, but more people don’t always mean more students. I think our increase can be attributed to our hard-working faculty and staff as well as the incredible financial support our area students receive from the Williston State College Foundation.”
