RUSTON, La. (AP) - More students have enrolled at Louisiana Tech University this fall than at any time in its history.

The university said in a news release Wednesday it had achieved a nearly 55 percent growth in first-time freshmen since fall of 2012.

Louisiana Tech has enrolled 12,694 students for the fall quarter - a 2.3 percent increase over last year and eclipsing the previous record enrollment of 12,414 students set last fall.

Along with the record number of students attending Louisiana Tech, the quality of students in the freshman class has continued to increase. This year’s first-time freshmen have an average ACT score of 24.7 - a significant increase of two-tenths of a point over last year.
