Katie Boleware, Carson-Newman senior and Student Government Association President, welcomes students and faculty to a new academic year at the University’s fall convocation. Carson-Newman announced that it has seen growth in most areas for the new year.

Carson-Newman University announced that it has seen an increase in total enrollment at the start of the 2013-14 academic year. Up 78 students, the total enrollment of 2,045 is nearly a four percent increase over last year’s 1,967. It also marks the highest enrollment in two years.

The University has seen an increase in nearly every area. The number of undergraduates (1,713) is up by 67 students over last year, while graduate students (332) are up by 11 over 2012 numbers. Carson-Newman has also experienced growth among freshmen, transfer students, and international students.

Carson-Newman also registered 31 students entering the University’s first doctoral program in education, which was announced in June.

“Of course we are always excited when we see an increase in our enrollment,” said Carson-Newman President Randall O’Brien. “But we are especially pleased to experience an increase on so many fronts. To us, it confirms that students are looking for an educational experience that results in not only a respected degree, but one that can be truly transformational in what it offers.”

Last month Carson-Newman was cited by Washington Monthly as America’s No. 10 Baccalaureate College.  The University was also named a “Best in the Southeast” by The Princeton Review.
