Saint Mary’s reports 1,370 Winona campus undergraduates

WINONA, Minn. — Official 10th-day-of-class statistics for the Saint Mary's University undergraduate College show a total enrollment of 1,370. That number includes 1,311 full-time Winona campus undergraduates and 59 part-time students.

A total of 347 freshmen are enrolled this fall, up 5 percent over last year.

Even though the freshman count is up, the overall undergraduate enrollment shows a slight decrease from the 1,404 recorded in fall 2009.

“The larger freshman class is evidence that students and families recognize the value of a Saint Mary's education,” according to Bob Conover, vice president for communication and marketing. “You can feel the energy and excitement these new students have brought to campus.”

Enrollment will be counted in October for the SMU Schools of Graduate and Professional Programs.
