SWOSU Continues as Popular Choice for Incoming Freshmen


Southwestern Oklahoma State University continues to be a popular choice for incoming freshmen as 754 high school seniors have enrolled for the 2010 fall semester at SWOSU as part of the New Student Orientation Program on the Weatherford campus.

Todd Boyd, director of admissions and recruitment, said freshmen enrollment continues to run significantly higher than at the same time in 2009.

"People continue to select SWOSU as their college choice," Boyd said. "Students and parents like that we have 15 nationally-accredited academic programs-most among Oklahoma's regional universities-and are impressed with our facilities. The Wellness Center, renovated Student Center and the soon-to-be-built Event Center are positive and popular additions to the campus."

SWOSU is offering two more enrollment opportunities for high school seniors who are planning to attend SWOSU this fall. Enrollment dates are July 22 and August 13.

Students must apply and be accepted to SWOSU before they can attend an enrollment session. Each of the enrollment sessions offers students the chance to meet current SWOSU students and new freshmen, visit and enroll with a faculty advisor within the major they have selected, and get all their questions answered.
