HAYS, Kan. (AP) A report from the Kansas Board of Regents shows that Fort Hays State University is the fastest growing university in the state system.
The Hays Daily News reports that enrollment at Fort Hays State during fiscal year 2011 was 14,707, up nearly a thousand from the year before.
That increase of 5.8 percent was by far the largest increase of any regents universities. The only other institutions that grew during FY2011 were Wichita State University, up 1.8 percent, and Kansas State University, up .2 percent.
FHSU has been setting enrollment records since the turn of the century, more than doubling enrollment of 5,800 during that time to 13,062 at the end of the 2011 semester.
