Although BJU declined to publicly announce enrollment figures for this year, those statistics were detailed internally by Gary Weier at this morning’s Faculty/Staff meeting. A person who attended the meeting passed on the relevant numbers, listed here:
-BJU welcomed 711 freshman this year, an increase from last year’s 698.
-The total enrollment as of today is 3,304 students. 2011-12: 3,485.
-The total number of new students this year is 941–probably the source of yesterday’s rumor.
-It was said in the meeting that the University set a goal of bringing in 950 new students this year, a goal which was nearly met.
