 LA CROSSE, Wis—Total fall enrollment at Viterbo University set a new high, up seven percent from last year’s  record figure.

Total enrollment stands at 2,331 students according to official statistics released by the registrar’s office.

In compiling record total enrollment, several other new marks were also set. Graduate level enrollment jumped 18 percent to set an all-time record of 557. Next summer, university officials expect to see 460 graduate level teachers attend proseminar classes on campus.

The number of full-time undergraduate student (1,546) also broke the record set in 1997 (1,532).

Viterbo’s enrollments have been at or near capacity for a number of years in terms of classrooms and living space available for enrolled students, yet the number continues to grow because the increase has been spread out over a variety of programs.

"Much of our growth over the past decade has been with adult programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, which are offered in the evening or off campus,"  said William J. Medland, president of Viterbo University. "Next year, the Center for Ethics, Science, and Technology will make available more classroom space which we desperately need."

"The growth that we have experienced has allowed Viterbo to expand its programs not only for our students but also in other initiatives— such as the fine arts—to the community at large. That has had a very positive effect," Medland said.
