Breaking records

Enrollment at The University of Texas at Arlington has hit an all-time high this spring, according to unofficial numbers, with many of the university's 33,806 students enrolled in its online programs, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. The growth this spring is being driven by gains in business, nursing, engineering, science and social work. The increasingly popular online offerings, along with a massive building boom on campus and the growing prestige of many of its academic programs, are making UT Arlington the first choice for many students, said Ronald L. Elsenbaumer, provost and vice president for academic affairs.

Big increases

WBAP/820AM and 96.7FM reported that UT Arlington is now the largest university in North Texas, with spring enrollment reaching a record high of 33,806. The report said enrollment represented a 35 percent increase from 2008 numbers.
