There are more new students this fall at UW schools than at any time since 2018. But not every campus is seeing an increase.
The university yesterday said UW-Madison, UW-Green Bay, UW-Superior, and UW-La Crosse all saw their enrollments go up this fall. The state’s other campuses were either flat or saw fewer students.
Total new student enrollment topped 26 thousand students for the first time since 2018. UW System President Jay Rothman says new enrollment plans and the end of the coronavirus pandemic helped drive enrollment higher.
A peek locally shows us that UW-Eau Claire is not one of the UW campuses with more students this fall. The school says UW-Eau Claire saw enrollment drop five percent this year.
