Vice President of Enrollment Management Candace Boeninger said the division of enrollment management expected to have more than 25,000 applications submitted by May 1 for the 2023-24 academic year, which is more than last year's numbers.

“We’re not surprised to see a slight increase, since students nationally are submitting a higher number of applications to colleges and universities on average,” Boeninger wrote in an email. “Since our admission processes and guidelines are the same, we expect our volume of admitted students to be fairly similar to recent years.”

Ali Kleiner, an incoming freshman who plans to study environmental pre-law, said she immediately accepted her offer to OU because she was confident it was the right school for her.

-------------------------

The current confirmations of intent to enroll are well ahead of prior years' decisions, Boeninger said. She added this trend may conclude students have an overall increased interest in attending OU.

“We are finding that the fall 2023 entering class is full of motivated, engaged and academically talented future Bobcats,” Boeninger wrote in an email. “We are excited to welcome them to our community and look forward to the mark they will make on this institution.”

Having friends with kids now going through the college selection process, it doesn't surprise me that applications are up. The online portals make applying to multiple schools at once quite easy. Some families cast a rather wide net. Seems like this will be a bad barometer to measure growth by. It will then just come down to enrollees by size. Let's hope that becomes a record number for OHIO.

What will always ultimately matter is the yield (size) and quality of the enrolled freshman class. A rise in applications is certainly a good indicator that the class might improve, but it's not definitive.

Agree more applications are not definitive but its continuing on the upward trajectory of 2021, 2022 and 2023 compared with the 2020 projections of soon having only 12,500 undergraduates in Athens. Athens campus is on track to be back to 16,000 undergraduates within a year or two from the 14,350 that its currently.

Dorm space?? Are they thinking ahead about housing? Every nook and cranny in Athens is already for rent as housing.

The University has contracted out housing space with River Park Towers to handle the overflow of freshman students since they only have 3750 beds on campus and want to maintain that number long term.

And where good sir did you get that 3750 number? This link says capacity should be maintained at 7500.

That's right. I believe I was thinking per class when I wrote the 3750 number not the total beds for freshman ans sophmores.
