Tabor sets record for freshman class

Staff writer

The number of incoming freshman students at Tabor College set a record this fall with a 34% increase.

Overall enrollment, including transfer students, is up 23%.

Incoming freshman make up 171 of the college’s 237 new students, including 31 students from Mennonite Brethren Churches across the U.S.

School officials said this year’s freshmen class is the largest in the history of the school.

Grant Myers, dean of enrollment, said he attributes the growth to God and diligent work by recruiters, coaches, faculty, staff, and constituents.

“The significant increase in the number of students who attend MB churches is a result of effective scholarship programs, the hard work of our admissions recruiters and God’s favor,” said Rusty Allen, executive vice president for operations. “We could not be more excited to see how the increased number of students from MB churches will positively impact our campus culture.”

Overall enrollment, at 504, is up 1.8% over last fall.
