Washington Post Ranks USD Among Fastest Growing Flagship Universities
The Post said the ranking, which put the University of Alabama atop the list at 92 percent growth since 2000, is based on an analysis of federal data from fall 2013 enrollment. Scott Pohlson, vice president of Marketing, Enrollment and University Relations at USD, credits the majority of the school’s growth in online students in its listing as the seventh-fastest-growing flagship. However, USD has also seen a 16-percent increase in Vermillion-based first-time, full-time enrollment since going Division I in 2006, he said.
"USD is on the rise in more than one area and our nearly $270 million dollars in campus improvements all focused on improving the student experience has a lot to do with that rise. I was amazed by what USD had to offer after growing up in Iowa and I think we are starting to see our investments payoff in terms of students being attracted to USD," Pohlson said.
