Nearly 30 percent increase is recorded

FEB. 19 – Trine University has set a new institutional record for students studying at Trine during the spring semester with 3,657 students. It’s a nearly 30 percent increase from the same time last year. 

Trine has 3,657 students this spring, compared to 2,829 last year. The increase is attributed to more graduate and international students as well as more business, engineering and health sciences students. Also aiding the growth is Trine’s dual enrollment program which enables high school students to take college courses. 

“This increase is especially satisfying when coupled with our record-setting enrollment the past two fall semesters,” said Scott Goplin, vice president for enrollment management. “Everyone on campus, including faculty, staff, coaches and current students, plays a huge role in growing and sustaining enrollment.” 

Trine prides itself on producing career-ready graduates prepared to succeed, lead and serve. Experiential learning, capstone projects, real-world application of classroom learning and enhanced campus experiences combine to give students a well-rounded education. Of Trine’s 2015 graduates, 98.8 percent were employed or in graduate school within six months of graduating.
