Enrollment at Charleston Southern University continues to grow with a record enrollment of 3,653.
“Through the outstanding efforts of the enrollment services staff and the broad-based support of our faculty, CSU has a record enrollment to start the 2016-17 school year,” said Dr. George Metz, vice president for enrollment services. “We continue to be blessed with students seeking a faith-based institution with strong academic programs, engaged faculty and a spirited campus atmosphere.”
Academic program growth:
With growing enrollment, CSU continues to expand and enhance its campus facilities. An 8,000-square-foot facility for an athletic weight room and a football meeting room is in the design stages, and fundraising is underway for the Singleton Baseball Complex. In addition, a 4,000-square-foot extension to the dining hall was completed before students returned to campus, and Russell East residence hall was renovated.
Charleston Southern is a liberal arts university and is one of South Carolinas largest accredited, independent universities, enrolling 3,600 students. Recognized as one of Americas Best Christian Colleges, the Universitys vision is to be a Christian university nationally recognized for integrating faith in learning, leading and serving.
