Corpus Christi Independent School District students weren't the only ones back in the classroom on Monday. Some area colleges had their first day of class as well.

Students at Del Mar College began their fall semester Monday, as did students at Texas A&M University-Kingsville.

TAMUK said student enrollment was up more than six-percent from last year. The Javelinas expect to top 8,000 students before the end of the enrollment period.

Fall semester at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi begins on Wednesday.
