Fall Enrollment Finalized

Fall enrollment has been finalized for the 2017-18 school year. 1136 students are enrolled at UJ this year, making this the largest number of students enrolled at the university in over a decade.

“We are happy to welcome a diverse groups of students to campus. Our students represent 30 states and 20 foreign countries,” reports Dr. Badal, University of Jamestown President. “The graduate programs at UJ have experienced steady growth over the last few years, and this year is no exception. Graduate programs as a group are up with growth in the Master of Education and Master of Arts in Leadership programs.”

Jimmie athletics programs will also see growth this year as the University launches first year teams in competitive dance, competitive cheerleading and esports. Following accreditation approval, the Mechanical Engineering program will be a recruiting emphasis. Returning students will also notice that construction on Harold Newman Arena is nearly complete, and the facility is already in use.

Mike Heitkamp, Vice President of Enrollment, states, “The investments in academic offerings, facilities, athletic programs and club sports continue to enhance UJ enrollment. New initiatives have played an important role in our positioning for the years to come. Mechanical Engineering is an academic offering that continues to grow in interest around the region, as do our new club sport offerings in esports and Cheer/Dance. We are happy to welcome our new Jimmies to campus. With all that is happening today and in the future, it’s a great day to be a Jimmie!
