Kevin Halle, admissions director at Wayne State College, says it’s not too late to send in an application for the fall semester.
“There’s still time to get that information in, the sooner, the better,” Halle says. “There’s still room available for the ’17-’18 year. We’d encourage students to reach out of they have questions or need assistance in completing that process.”
Halle says they have been working since early this year to bring more freshmen to the campus in Wayne.
“We are looking to really see more freshmen this year and perhaps see a bump in transfer students as well,” Halle says. “It’s been very positive all year long in terms of our overall recruitment efforts and applications in general have been really positive all year.”
He says Wayne State is in the second year of its expanded recruiting program.
“Actually, a year ago in July, we kicked off strategic enrollment planning which is really taking the institution in a direction that has us thinking creatively,” Halle says, “whether that’s to attract a non-traditional population or different populations in other areas.”
Halle says they are now extending their reach into neighboring states. Wayne State had about 36-hundred students enrolled last year.
