For the second year in a row, Lubbock Christian University welcomed one of the largest freshmen classes in the history of the university.
“The 2017-18 academic year is off to a great start with highly motivated and engaged students and a talented faculty and staff who are passionate about the university’s mission of changing lives,” said LCU President Tim Perrin. “We give thanks for each and every one of our students and for the continuing strength of our academic programs.”
The total enrollment for the fall of 2017 is 1,883 students.
Undergraduate enrollment nears 1,500 students, with a full-time undergraduate enrollment increase of about 5% percent over the past three years. Another enrollment record was achieved by the University’s Honors College, which has grown by 42% during the same period.
Total enrollment declined by just more than one percent from the fall of 2016, which can be explained by the strategic elimination of two online graduate programs.
New initiatives in campus housing and academic facilities have provided students newly renovated residence halls and the recently opened James and Jeanette Ling Science Center.
“We are richly blessed to see upward momentum in areas that are vitally important to us,” said Brian Starr, executive vice president. “We give thanks to God for the friends and students he has sent our way, and look forward to another dynamic, life-changing year at Lubbock Christian University.”
