Huntington University has released its official numbers and fall 2016 marks its largest enrollment ever at 1,300 students.

There are 916 residential campus undergraduate students, 85 students enrolled in professional programs, and 299 graduate students. Total enrollment for these programs comes in at 1,300 students, up 27 students from 2015.

“We are excited about each one of the 1,300 students who are investing themselves at Huntington University. Whether it’s a recent high school graduate or a doctoral student, we count it a privilege to be part of the transformation that takes place in their lives through their education,” said Daniel Solms, vice president for enrollment management & marketing.
