LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The University of Louisiana at Lafayette may soon welcome its largest freshman class ever.

DeWayne Bowie, vice president for enrollment management, tells The Advertiser () first-year students who enroll next month may surpass 3,000 freshmen and challenge the record set by the 1998 freshman class of 3,100, UL’s largest ever.

Bowie said UL is reaping the benefits of the university brand, which he said has become stronger in recent years with the initiation of selective admissions on campus, improved facilities and winning sports teams.

Bowie said UL enrolled 17,195 students last fall, a record number, and said registration numbers suggest big numbers this year.
