BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - Montana State University has broken its enrollment record for the 10th year in a row.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reported (https://bit.ly/2yMgylU ) Thursday that the university’s fall enrollment of 16,703 students is up 2 percent and 263 students from last year.

MSU also has the largest number of students from Montana in its 124-year history, with 10,251 in-state students, who came from all 56 counties.

MSU President Waded Cruzado said the numbers mean that more students than ever have the opportunity to get a “life-changing education at MSU.”

Freshman enrollment, however, is down 4 percent at the university - which officials say is on purpose.

MSU spokesman Tracy Ellig says the university tapped the bakes on accepting freshman in order to moderate enrollment growth.
