Overall enrollment numbers are down slightly at Mesa State College this semester, but the school's president says the number of full–time students is up and that is a good sign for the future. This fall semester 6,015 students enrolled. This is a slight decrease from last year's 6,181.
Mesa State President Tim Foster says the number of traditional full time students is up 2.5% and 4.5% more of the incoming freshman are full–time students.
As for the decline in the overall enrollment at Mesa State College President Foster says it's because of a drop in part–time non-traditional students who he believes are now working in the Grand Valley's growing job market.
