Colorado Christian University Reports Record Enrollment

This fall Colorado Christian University welcomed the largest incoming class in its history to the College of Undergraduate Studies (CUS), President Bill Armstrong announced today. Exactly 400 new CUS students started classes in August, bringing the University's traditional undergraduate enrollment to 980. The new class breaks the previous enrollment record set in 2001. It also represents a 16 percent increase in both new and returning students over last year.

A number of factors have contributed to this surge in enrollment, Armstrong said. "Under the leadership of Ron Rex, CCU's Vice President for Advancement, the University has reenergized the admissions process, focusing on personal attention and customer service. Ron and his team have done an absolutely phenomenal job. We are also getting the word out about CCU's unique attributes through our new Web site," he said.

"More students are choosing to come to CCU so they can receive a high quality education that integrates faith, helping them develop the skills and knowledge they will need in their careers as well as critical leadership abilities that set them apart in the workforce. We are absolutely committed to providing the standard to be met for education and understanding about the importance of a Christian worldview."

More than 50 percent of CCU's new students come from outside of Colorado, representing 42 states and two different countries. Their average grade point average is 3.39 and they come from the top of their high school classes. These impressive academic statistics and the demonstrated leadership and service commitments reflected on their applications reveal their high potential for achieving success in their education at CCU.

"The high quality of CCU's incoming students reflects the University's commitment to high academic standards and to servant leadership as well as the need for Christian higher education in general," Armstrong said. "We look forward to what our new students will accomplish during their time at CCU and how they will impact the world after graduation."
