Mizzou Student Enrollment Sets Record, Tops 34,000

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — The first day of classes at the University of Missouri’s flagship campus in Columbia saw yet another all-time high for student enrollment.

More than 34,000 undergraduate and graduate students were enrolled on Monday, up nearly 1,000 from the first day of fall classes last year. That’s been a steady pattern at Mizzou for most of the past decade.

Unofficial first-day numbers show that Missouri’s total minority student population stands at 4,940, a 10.3 percent gain. Minority enrollment among first-year students increased by nearly 15 percent.

Nearly 27,000 of the students on the Columbia campus are undergraduates.
