LA CROSSE, Wis. (WEAU) -University of Wisconsin-La Crosse is announcing for the second consecutive year they have welcomed the largest first-year class in school history.

According to a media release from UW-La Crosse, first-year enrollment stood at 2,308 on the 10th day of the fall semester, surpassing the previous record of 2,207, set last year. The media release from UW-La Crosse notes overall enrollment held steady, dropping slightly from 10,314 students to 10,302 students.

“The common themes I hear from new students and families are our academic reputation - faculty, staff and students-and their desire to be a part of that,” Corey Sjoquist, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Admissions & Recruitment, said. “We have a beautiful campus with great facilities. And we’re fortunate to be located in La Crosse, which is an amazing place to live and unlike anywhere else in Wisconsin.”
