Hobson's provides weekly lists of inquiries to Austin Peay's Admissions Office. This past week, three inquiries were from Ohio with one each from Texas, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Iowa and New York-New Jersey. The remainder was from Tennessee or given as “unlisted.”

“Seniors are at the close of their college search, and juniors are just beginning, so we expect to see an increase in weekly inquiries as time goes by,” Stringer said.
