ENMU enrollment remains steady, bucks statewide trend
PORTALES, N.M. (AP) — Eastern New Mexico University is defying downward enrollment trends at other campuses and is reporting the second-highest enrollment in its history.
The university recently reported a 2018 fall enrollment of 6,015. Although those enrollment numbers are flat from the year before, undergraduate student numbers rose to 4,706. The undergraduate numbers are a school record.
