Admissions.JPGWillimantic, CT -- The final enrollment figures at Eastern Connecticut State University are in, and University officials are very pleased. As of Sept. 21, there are 4,327 full-time undergraduates, 916 part-time undergraduates, and 367 graduate students enrolled at Eastern, Connecticut's only public liberal arts university.  Overall, 5,610 students are enrolled in classes at Eastern, an increase of nearly four percent above last year.

In addition, the average SAT scores of incoming freshmen is 1031, up 21 points over fall 2008. The incoming class hails from towns across Connecticut, the United States and around the world. Of Connecticut's 169 towns, 163 are represented on Eastern's campus. Students are coming from 23 states and 47 countries, including China, Norway, Turkey, Sweden, South Korea among others.  

"This is wonderful," said Kimberly Crone, director of admissions and enrollment management. "We reached more than 100 percent of our enrollment goal with undergraduate students and 112 percent of our goal with graduate students. These numbers show that students who choose to attend Eastern embrace our liberal arts mission and core values inside and outside of the classroom. They also know they will get the best bang for their buck at Eastern, and they feel very confident they will leave Eastern in four years as top-notched critical thinkers and future leaders." Crone said students are attracted by the university's reputation of having  a faculty dedicated to the success of each student, small classes and state-of-the art facilities.
