brescia blue 300OWENSBORO, KY (10/21/13) - Brescia University releases the final fall 2013 enrollment numbers, which indicate the seventh consecutive year of undergraduate degree-seeking growth.

The total headcount at Brescia is 949 students, of which 869 are undergraduate, degree-seeking, and 80 are non-degree and graduate students. This indicates an eight percent increase in total students and an eight percent increase in undergraduate, degree-seeking students compared to fall 2012.

This is the largest enrollment level for our undergraduate students seeking a degree since the fall of 1973 when enrollment was 878.

"After seven consecutive years of enrollment growth, Brescia is no longer the best keep secret in western Kentucky!" said Chris Houk, Vice President for Enrollment Management and Executive Director of BUonline.

"This growth is directly attributable to the hard work and dedication of our entire community who model the Brescia Difference in their daily service. I am excited with this continued success and look forward to completing the strategic planning goal of 1,000 undergraduate degree seeking students before the fall 2015 semester."
