Austin Peay State University is continuing its trend of increased enrollment this spring.

APSU has 9,401 students taking classes in the Spring 2010 semester — an increase of more than 700 students from Spring 2009 — according to figures from the registrar's office. This gain comes after more than 600 students graduated at the fall commencement in December 2009.

Current, yet unofficial, enrollment reflects all students taking courses on the main campus, at the Austin Peay Center @ Fort Campbell and at the Renaissance Center in Dickson. In fact, current spring enrollment of 82 students at the Dickson Center, only in its second semester, is twice last fall's head count.

The official spring figures won't be available until students at the Fort Campbell Center enroll in the Spring II semester. Registration for those courses is from March 8-12, and classes begin March 13.

Since Spring 2005, APSU has observed an increase of more than 1,300 students over the five-year period.

APSU's spring semester growth follows a milestone reached in Fall 2009, when the University observed a record enrollment of 10,188 students. -- Melony Shemberger
