Colorado State University Expects Large Fall 2007 Freshman Class

Early enrollment numbers indicate that Colorado State University can expect another record-breaking incoming freshman class in the fall of 2007.

Preliminary estimates reveal that the freshman class is expected to be between 4,300 and 4,400 students. The university admitted 4,093 new freshmen in the fall of 2006, making it the largest freshman class to date. It is likely that a new record will be set with the fall 2007 class.

It is expected that 78 percent of the incoming freshman class are Colorado residents and 22 percent are from out-of-state.

Minority student estimates remain steady at about 15 percent for freshmen enrollment, the same percentage as in 2006.

It is anticipated that Residence Halls will open at full occupancy this fall with 5,165 students. Not all students who live in the Residence Halls are freshmen students.

Overall enrollment for fall 2007 is expected to increase as well. In fall 2006, overall enrollment totaled 24,670 students including 20,500 undergraduates.

Final enrollment figures will be available mid-September after the official campus census date of Sept. 5.
