Crown Welcomes Largest Freshman Class Ever
Posted October 14th, 2013
On-campus enrollment highest in 30 years!
This fall, Crown College welcomed the largest in-coming freshman class ever in its 97 year history! In addition, total enrollment in the School of Arts and Science (SAS) is the largest in 30 years. This is especially encouraging news as enrollments in institutions of higher education across the country have begun declining in several segments, according to one key source, Inside Higher Ed.
Crown students, this year, represent 19 different countries from around the world. In addition, over 22% of Crown’s student-body come from multi-cultural backgrounds, again significantly higher than most private, four-year accredited institutions.
In Crown’s School of Online Studies and Graduate School, military veterans and service-members now represent 10% of all students, an increase of more than 300% in the last three years. Crown College has been awarded the status of Military Friendly Institution by G.I. Jobs, one of the nation’s leading resources for military personnel.
Mike Price, Vice President of Enrollment & Marketing at Crown, commented, “People are beginning to understand the difference that Crown offers with regard to helping students learn, from a practical standpoint, how to integrate their Christian faith into our various professional degree programs like Nursing, Business, Communications, Psychology, and of course Family and Youth Ministry.” He continued, “We are excited about how our Faculty and Admissions teams are engaging with prospective students and their parents. They know the importance of being authentic in how they differentiate the value offered at Crown compared to other area institutions.”
