Reinhardt Welcomes Record Number of New Students

Reinhardt's Main Campus in Waleska, Ga., was more crowded than usual on Monday, Aug. 21 for the first day of classes. The College welcomed 373 new students for the 2006-07 academic year; a record number for the institution! Total enrollment stands at 1,064 students, which was well above the College's admissions goals. Residence halls on the Main Campus are also at capacity with 474 residents.

"These numbers show what we here at Reinhardt already know, our College is a vital and exciting place to be and more and more students are discovering that," said Reinhardt President Dr. J. Thomas Isherwood.

New and returning students have three new degree programs offered to them this fall semester. The Price School of Education now offers English education and biology education for grades six through 12, and a music education program for pre-school through 12th grade.

"These programs are fulfilling a well-established need from our students. We are excited to offer these opportunities in our education program," said Dr. Robert Driscoll, vice president of academic affairs and dean of the College.

Construction on the new Hasty Student Life Center also provides excitement for the campus, as the $4.5 million building is underway with a planned completion date of May 2007.
