LA CROSSE, Wis. (WEAU) -- An area university is seeing its highest enrollment in school history.
The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse has more than 10,000 students enrolled.
UW-L also has its largest freshmen class since 1986.
Chancellor Joe Gow said he thinks the numbers have to do with providing education at an affordable cost.
He said it costs $95 less this year to go to UW-L than it did last year, because tuition was frozen.
Plus, he said student fees were lowered, particularly parking and textbook rental, because funds were carefully managed over the last few years.
“I think students say that’s a great school at a great price. That’s somewhere that I want to be, and we’re delighted they feel that way,” said Gow.
Gow also said UW-L has received good reviews in U.S. News and World Report and Kiplinger.
