Freshman numbers up at Louisiana State University this fall
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Preliminary numbers show Louisiana State University is on track to have its largest freshman class in history.
The university started fall classes Monday by announcing that it expects to have at least 5,800 freshmen, topping a prior record of 5,725 enrolled six years earlier. LSU says the freshman class is its most diverse, as well, with more than 1,625 students in the incoming freshman class who reported themselves as non-white, compared to 1,252 last year.
Its honors college on campus also has a historically high level of enrollment, at 740 students, the largest ever. The numbers can change, however.
Enrollment figures for Louisiana's flagship university in Baton Rouge are finalized after two weeks of class, on Sept. 7.
