DCB Enrollment Strong

Posted: Updated:

The first full day of classes at Dakota College at Bottineau brings an air of optimism.

College Dean Dr. Ken Grosz says early indications are that enrollment at the two-year college will be up this fall.

One year ago there were 774 students on campus on opening day.

This year, Grosz says the figure is likely over 800 and he expects the official enrollment to be well over the 800 mark - perhaps as much as 850.

He says there are several factors pushing the student numbers higher at Bottineau.

(Dr. Ken Grosz, Dakota College at Bottineau Dean) "Certainly the increased activities we have in varsity sports has made a difference, also the expansion of our online program, our dual credit program is growing. We also have a robust and vibrant nursing program. We have a nursing program here and in Rugby and Valley City. And then also a lot of online students, so that's all contributed to a pretty good enrollment for us."

Dr. Grosz says fall activity on campus has been helped by the college's relatively new football program.

The Lumberjacks won their first game of the year last Saturday.
