Enrollment is at a record high at The University of Minnesota Crookston. This is the second year in a row UMC has seen a record for its undergraduate numbers.

There are 1-thousand 320 undergraduate students attending UMC. That beats last year numbers, which was also a record, of 1-thousand 207. The number students taking online courses is part of the growing enrollment.

But the number of students living on campus is also at a record high which has housing at capacity. Just last week the University held a dedication ceremony for new student housing facility.

Andrew Svec: "Even local demographics have shown kinda decline in Highschool graduates we are actually going out and casting a wider net if you will."

The UMC's student body is also the most diverse in the history of campus. There are 99 foreign students from 25 different countries.
