Several Colleges Begin School Year with More Students

UNDATED (AP) - Things may feel a little more crowded at a number of Ohio colleges and universities getting the fall term under way today.

The University of Akron says enrollment is up by more than 3 and a-half percent. A spokesman says campus building and improvement projects have helped to attract more students.

At Kent State, the official enrollment numbers won't be ready until mid-September, but an official says the university expects to see big growth in its student body based on a record number of applications.

At the small University of Rio (RY'-oh) Grande (grand) in southeast Ohio, there are as many as 200 more freshmen than last year. The school credits a new program that spreads out scholarship money.
