Freshman enrollment for next year is projected at 3,800. On an annualized clip factoring about a half of class for 5th year students and transfers the future undergraduate population is projecting 17,100.

https://www.athensnews.com/news/campus/ohio-university-bo...

Last year with the pandemic undergraduate numbers in Athens dipped below 15,000 and projections were made that it would drop to as low as 12,500 by 2024 citing reduced amount of Ohio HS graduates. Truth is mainly the university was outsold which accounted for the drop while other state schools did better. At this juncture I doubt we'll see that 12,500 undergraduate projection.

The 81% retention rate sticks out as a real positive. The 3.59 GPA makes me chuckle.

Everyone's GPA is up so a 3.59 isn't what it was 25 years ago. Cincinnati is now 3.7 GPA which should be the goal for Ohio. 3.65 or 3.66 is close enough to that target.

Potential I don't believe not there for a 3.8 or 3.9 GPA average. Ohio State has a 3.76 GPA but with such a large student body I'm sure many don't have a 3.5.

I stopped paying much attention to GPAs when some scales started exceeding 4.0.

Yeah but a B student in your era and geographic location is an A++ in this neck of the woods.
