Enrollment up slightly at DWUMITCHELL — Dakota Wesleyan University announced an enrollment Friday of 779 students.
MITCHELL — Dakota Wesleyan University announced an enrollment Friday of 779 students.
That’s up from 774 last year.
Seventy percent of the student body this year comes from South Dakota, with 30 percent from out of state, mostly from Minnesota and California.
“At this juncture, until we have additional facilities, our enrollment growth is constrained by lack of available classroom space,” said Amy Novak, provost and executive vice president. “We are excited that with the new health sciences center, additional academic space will allow us to grow our overall enrollment and expand our high-demand programs.”
Last week, DWU announced it had received a pair of $5 million donations that will allow it to break ground this month on an $11.5 million health sciences center.
