TAMUCC Spring Enrollment Rises Above 10,000 Students

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

For the first time ever, spring enrollment numbers at Texas A&M-University Corpus Christi have broken the 10,000 student barrier.

In figures released by the university Monday, spring enrollment for the 2014 school year reached 10,0400 -- an increase of nearly 5.81-percent over the spring semester last year.

TAMUCC President Flavius Killebrew said that, at the rate enrollment is rising, the University may soon run out of classroom space. He added that the state legislature failed this year to approve a general increase in funds for college classroom construction. He's hoping that will change in the next legislative session.
