The student population at the Paris Junior College-Sulphur Springs Center rose 7.6 percent this semester, part of a system-wide enrollment record for the two-year college.
Spring enrollment at Paris Junior College again saw registration records falling, with student counts at all PJC campuses increasing more than 12 percent from one year ago.
The total number of students enrolled is 4,639, and total contact hours for the semester are 1,031,453.
The PJC-Sulphur Springs Center contributed to the record, with enrollment increasing to 732, up from 680 in the 2008 spring semester.
“Paris Junior College continues to provide reasonably priced quality education to our service area,” said PJC President Dr. Pamela Anglin. “These numbers show that people recognize that fact. In these troubled economic times, PJC provides a vital service to our community.
“In addition to giving university-bound students a way to take their first two years of standard courses at a reasonable cost, we have high-demand professional programs such as nursing and welding,” Dr. Anglin added. “And our jewelry institute gets nationwide employment requests from businesses wanting to hire our graduates.”
