Spring enrollment at Haskell Indian Junior College is down from the fall semester but pretty much in line with enrollments from past spring semesters, a Haskell official said this morning.
Barbara Berryhill, registrar at Haskell, said 777 students were counted at the college on Friday, two days after regular enrollment ended. Berryhill said the figure accounts for at least one student who enrolled late.
Enrollment is noticeably down from the 898 students who were at Haskell this fall, but it's very close to the spring 1991 enrollment of 779. Berryhill said spring enrollment during the past 10 years usually has been from 750 to 800 students.
"I think this is a pretty good spring enrollment," she said.
The highest spring enrollment in the last 10 years came in 1982 with 932 students. The lowest enrollment was in the spring of 1988, when 689 students were on campus.
Berryhill said her office expects to have compiled demographic information on students' home states, tribal affiliations and ages by the end of this week or by early next week.
"If things are true to form, we'll have quite a few states represented again," Berryhill said.
She said about 35 states were represented at Haskell during the fall semester.
