Rigorous efforts by MSU Texas staff and faculty to boost enrollment and retention at the university appear to be paying off.
At the MSU Board of Regents meeting Thursday, Fred Dietz, vice president for enrollment management, said the rate of retention of students went up three percent.
“This is thanks to an effort that the whole campus took on,” he said.
Several programs and initiatives have gone into action in the past few years to attract college students to the campus and support these students through completion of their degrees.
Another promising note is the university had its second-largest incoming freshman class this fall semester.
