Northeast Miss. CC hits record enrollment
BOONEVILLE – Enrollment at Northeast Mississippi Community College has reached a record high this fall.
College officials believe the achievement was fueled by increased recruiting efforts and a difficult economy that has caused many people to reevaluate their need for higher education.
The college had 3,707 students enrolled when registration ended for the current semester. This marks a 275 student increase over the previous record set in the fall of 2007 and a 405 student boost over last year’s figure.
NEMCC President Dr. Johnny Allen said it’s impossible to attribute the rise in enrollment to any single factor, but he believes the college’s efforts to recruit more students have played a major role.
