Midwestern State University is celebrating after surpassing the 6,000 mark in enrollment.
This Fall’s numbers increase by more than 160 students, which is nearly a three-percent increase. Officials attribute the rise in enrollment to the addition of graduate programs, such as the Master of Criminal Justice. They also said local and international recruiting efforts, increased scholarship availability and financial support from donors had an impact.
