Juneau student enrolls in University of Utah
Olivia Moore of Juneau is among the 4,483 students who make up the largest and most diverse freshman class in the University of Utah’s history, the university announced.
Despite nationwide concerns over declining enrollment for institutions of higher education due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Utah saw its largest total enrollment in its 170-year history for the Fall 2020 Semester, the university said in a news release.
“With many universities across the country seeing declining enrollments this fall, the University of Utah has again proven that we are unique,” said Steve Robinson, senior associate vice president for enrollment management in the news release. “More students chose to enroll at the U than ever before. This reflects both the value of our degrees and the incredible academic opportunities that the flagship of our state offers.”
