Spring 2010 Enrollment "Right on Target"


Spring 2010 enrollment at Eastern Illinois University is "right on target."

"Spring enrollment is always a few percentage points lower than what we see during the previous fall semester," said Blair Lord, provost and vice president for academic affairs. "And this year is no different."

The current on- and off-campus enrollment total of 11,075 reflects a slight drop from 11,157 in Spring 2009. Spring 2010 numbers include an on-campus enrollment of 9,887 and an off-campus enrollment of 1,188. Those numbers were 9,968 and 1,189, respectively, last spring.

A breakdown of Eastern's 9,395 undergraduate students is as follows (with Spring 2009 figures in parentheses): freshmen, 1,731 (1,837); sophomores, 1,887 (1,893); juniors, 2,370 (2,389); and seniors, 3,407 (3,338). Graduate students total 1,680 (1,700).

Female students continue to outnumber male students -- 6,455 to 4,620 (6,496 to 4,661 last spring).

Minority students, who represent more than 15 percent of Eastern's total enrollment, show an overall increase from Spring 2009. Categories are represented as follows: black, 1,193 (1,068); Hispanic, 294 (292); Asian/Pacific Islander, 131 (128); and American Indian/Alaskan Native, 57 (42).
