SIUE Spring Enrollment Climbs to Record High2015-01-30 13:47:54 SIUE.edu
Southern Illinois University Edwardsville?s spring 2015 semester has grown by 300 students from spring 2014 and full-time spring enrollment has reached an all-time high.
With 10,153 full-time and 13,178 total students enrolled, this is the best spring enrollment picture on record for the institution. The increase over last year is based on several factors including a two percent increase in continuing undergraduates, a 12 percent increase in international enrollment, a 75 percent increase in online and off-campus enrollment and a 40 percent increase in new spring transfer students.
?It is an impressive effort by our enrollment, advising and marketing staff?s ability to work with both faculty and the entire campus community to successfully compete in the current higher education marketplace,? said SIUE Chancellor Julie Furst-Bowe. ?SIUE?s academic quality and affordability continues to be attractive to prospective students and their families.?
The undergraduate programs experiencing the most growth over last year include nursing (+18.3 percent / 178 students), engineering (+15.7 percent / 181 students), entrepreneurship (+42.9 percent / 9 students), chemistry (+10.7 percent / 13 students) and special education (+25.5 percent / 14 students).
The largest growth among graduate programs includes environmental science (+26.9 percent / 7 students), computer management and information systems (+21.7 percent / 5 students), college student personnel (new program with 22 students) and civil engineering (+29.6 percent / 13 students).
?Enrollment was up 132 students for fall 2014, so we anticipated a corresponding increase for spring,? said Scott Belobrajdic, associate vice chancellor for enrollment management. ?It appears that our traditional retention efforts as well as new initiatives to recruit international students and offer online programs are having early success.
?Our deans have developed several entrepreneurial collaborations with corporate and educational partners, which serve the region and increase enrollment. All areas of the University have made contributions to this semester?s increase, and that includes the registrar?s office, student financial aid and our advising staff.?
The institution continues its drive toward a more diverse campus community with record spring enrollment for African American (1.736 total students) and Latino students (481 total students) as well as the 12 percent increase in international enrollment (403 total students) over spring 2014.
Interest for fall 2015 is also at a record pace according to Director of Admission Todd Burrell, who reports a record number of applications and admitted students for August.
?It is still early in the process,? said Burrell. ?But enrollment deposits are up five percent compared to last year. Meanwhile, the new freshman class has an average ACT of 24.1. The diversity and quality of the class both continue to grow, and we expect this spring?s positive momentum to carry over into the fall.?Read Full Story ...

SIUE Upward Bound Student?s Regional Talent Show Win Strengthens His Academic Ambitions2015-01-30 10:03:28 SIUE.edu
In person, the 16-year-old seems low-key, but on stage the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville Upward Bound student brought a crowd of 200 to its feet and won first place in a regional talent show competition.
Sergio Gomez is a student in SIUE?s East St. Louis Center TRIO Upward Bound Program. He was selected to attend the TRIO Mid-America Association of Educational Opportunity Program Personnel (MAEOPP) Pre-College Student Leadership Conference in October 2014.
The experience and excitement of attending the conference and participating in the talent show, Gomez said, has encouraged and emboldened him to push harder in life and academics.
?I hadn?t planned on entering the talent show,? Gomez said. ?I don?t normally like being out front. But I thought about it and decided I?d make myself try it. I?m more comfortable performing academically.?
Gomez is a junior at Cahokia High School and has a 3.8 grade point average. He joined the Upward Bound after school program to better prepare for college and to further boost his academic skills.
Sergio is also a member of his high school?s Junior Reserve Officers? Training Corps (ROTC).
?I decided the night before to enter the talent contest,? Gomez said. ?Our Junior ROTC wrote its own cadence, and I decided to sing it.?
Gomez was one of 15 performers from five states, most of whom had previously prepared an act for the show. In choosing winners, the judges considered creativity, audience involvement and amount of applause.
?It was the most nervous I?ve ever been. But I had the audience stand, march in place and sing the cadence with me. I wanted to honor veterans,? Gomez said. ?They really got into it. I didn?t think I?d win first place. It gave me some confidence to know that I can try other things.?
?Sergio is a dynamic student who has maintained academic focus and is ever pondering his future ambitions,? said Janell Smart, Upward Bound counselor. ?I?m excited to see his impact upon the world.?
Gomez?s future goals include studying ecology and traveling the world.
?But first, I?ve got to make it to, and get through, college,? he said. ?And I?m working on that plan now.?
SIUE ESLC TRIO Upward Bound programs are committed to developing year-round education programs that will excite, motivate and prepare selected high school students from the program?s target schools. We are committed to utilizing researched-based best-practices to prepare our students for successful high school completion and entrance into post-secondary programs. TRIO Upward Bound is a federally-funded college-prep program sponsored by Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and the U.S. Department of Education.
