Lubbock Christian University enters its 60th year with the largest freshman class in more than a five-year period, with a 16 percent increase from the prior year.
“In only six decades, the university has enjoyed remarkable growth and development, and we give thanks for all those who have sacrificed and given so much to make LCU what it is today,” said President Tim Perrin.
The undergraduate enrollment numbers of 1,471 combined with the 441 graduate and professional students brings Lubbock Christian University’s fall enrollment to 1,912 students. LCU has maintained consistent overall enrollment throughout the past five years, which allows stability for the university from year to year.
The 16 percent increase of freshmen enrollment does, however, provide a projection for growth in different areas of study for the university.
President Perrin added, “We are making a major investment in our students with significant new facilities for our science and nursing programs and are blessed with an outstanding faculty dedicated to LCU’s mission.”
One of these new developments is the LCU Honors College, which recently transitioned from a program to a college this fall, creating an increase in enrollment of 17 percent.
“This is an exciting time at LCU as we continue to expand and enhance our campus, offer our students life-changing experiences both in and out of the classroom, and deepen our commitment to our mission,” said President Perrin. “It’s a great day to be a Chap!”
