Midwest City, Okla. – Enrollment of students for the spring semester of classes at Rose State College was nearly 8,000, a 5-percent increase from last year’s spring enrollment, says Dr. Jeanie Webb, President of Rose State College.
“We are maxed out on space for classes on campus and Rose State’s online student base is continuing to grow over last year,” says Dr. Jeanie Webb, President of Rose State College. “We are offering a quality education at an affordable rate and students and parents are realizing the great instructional product.”
7,644 students attended classes at Rose State in the spring of 2017.
Fall enrollment at Rose State was also up 9.5 percent over the previous year.
Rose State College research shows the college now has students from 70 of the 77 counties in the state represented on campus. The introduction of on-campus student housing has been a game-changing expansion to recruitment. In addition, Rose State recently completed construction on a new 22-million dollar voter-approved state-of-the-art Learning Resource Center.
In late spring, it is anticipated the college will begin construction on renovation/addition of a new Student Union. The Union will house a one-stop environment for students to meet with advisors, enroll in classes, get books and grab a bite to eat. The Union is being funded through the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education Master Lease Purchase Program.
