    Record-Breaking Enrollment at UNT, TWU

    Two North Texas universities are having record-breaking Fall semesters.

    The University of North Texas welcomed 37,231 students this fall. The record-breaking enrollment is an almost three-percent increase over last year at UNT.

    "This is our biggest enrollment boost in the past few years, and coupled with the notable growth in the quality, diversity and breadth of our student population, is a sign of important change and momentum," UNT President Neal Smatresk said in a statement. "It's clear that more students are making UNT their first-choice university."

    A large number of graduate students also contributed to the enrollment boost.

    Texas Woman's University is also experiencing a record-breaking fall enrollment, with 15,303 students attending the university's three campuses in Denton, Dallas and Houston.

    Undergraduate enrollment has surpassed 10,000 students for the first time in the university's 114-year history.

    "This record enrollment is a result of efforts made by the entire university community to recruit and enroll strong students, and then to support these students on their successful educational journey while at TWU," said TWU Chancellor Carine M. Feyten in a statement. "I am proud of our achievements in student recruitment and success, and am confident the momentum we are building will continue moving forward."
