For the first time in nearly 20 years, and the second time in Texas Tech's history, there are more then 10,000 students on the university's campus for summer school sessions.
It's a mile marker the university says is a sign of good things to come ahead in the fall. "I think summer enrollment says as much as anything about where we are going as an institution," says TTU President Guy Bailey.
The numbers also address how the university is growing. For 2010 summer sessions, 10,317 students will walk into Tech classrooms, an increase in both undergraduate and graduate students for summer enrollment. "It says we are a university of choice, and we are increasingly the first choice for students around the state of Texas. We are extremely pleased," says Bailey.
