Ohio State Lima welcomes record enrollment

The Ohio State University at Lima welcomes a record number of students to first day of Autumn Quarter 2009 classes. More than 1500 students are scheduled for classes. The previous high was 1475 in Autumn Quarter 1991. Last year at this time, enrollment was 1409.

“It is exciting to welcome so many new and returning Buckeyes to campus,” said Beth Keehn, Associate Director of Enrollment Services at Ohio State Lima. “We look forward to helping each of these students achieve their educational and career goals.”

Approximately 475 new first quarter freshman were invited to the Dean’s Convocation and Picnic on Tues, Sept. 22, 2009. More than 85 of them attended the overnight leadership camp, Campin’ on the Quad, which took place on campus Sunday and Monday.

Official numbers will be available following the 15th day of classes.
