Enrollment at LSUE shows improvement

Enrollment for the spring 2012 semester at LSU Eunice was down from the spring 2011 semester, but showed positive signs that the enrollment slippage last year may have slowed, according to final regular spring semester enrollment figures released by the university’s registrar’s office.

Enrollment is 2,972 students. LSUE’s enrollment for Spring 2012 semester was only 0.3 percent down from the fall of 2011 enrollment of 2,982, according to a news release.

“Traditionally spring enrollments are always less than those in the fall,” LSUE Chancellor William Nunez said in a news release. “However, the limited decline of 0.3 percent from fall to spring in academic year 2011-2012 was the least drop recorded over the past several years.”

LSUE experienced drops of 4.5 percent between semesters in the 2010-2011 academic year, 2.9 percent in 2009-2010, and 2.5 percent in 2008-2009.
