Registration Sets New High Marks In Most Departments

Future Bar Members This Year Number 1353 as Compared to 1191 in 1925


The total first day's enrolment at the University when registration closed late yesterday afternoon was 7305 as compared with 6955 at the corresponding time last year, setting a new record for the first day of the academic year. Late registration will considerably increase this total in most departments.

New Record In College Registration

The College, with 3208 men thus far registered, is larger than ever before. Considerable increase in this figure is inevitable because of excused late registrations and September admissions. Last year's 3178 was, up to yesterday, the record for the first day. The registration in the College, by classes, was: 932 Freshmen, compared with 1028 a year ago (September admissions and excused late registrations will bring this figure up to the established limit of 1000); 876 Sophomores, compared with 807 in 1925; 731 Juniors, compared with 725 in 1925; and 574 Seniors, compared with 521 in 1925; 95 out of course students compared with 92 in 1926. There were also registered yesterday 45 special students under the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, compared with 20, a year ago.

Big Increase in Law School

Opening day enrolment at the Law School showed a large increase with 1353 students, as compared with 1191 last year, and includes a record first year class of 674, whereas the figure for the latter in September 1925 was 555.

The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, with a notable increase of almost 100 over the number of students registered a year ago, had 756 registrations as compared with 668 in 1925.

The Business School enrolled 21 more students than last year, the figures being 680 this year, and 659 in 1925.

Figures for last year are as follows:   1926  1925 Architectural School  61  56 Business School  680  659 Bussey Institution  16  9 College  3208  3173 Dental School  112  174 Engineering School  262  265 Graduate School of Arts and Sciences  756  668 Law School  1353  1191 Medical School  488  481 School of Education  163  132 School of Public Health  30  31 School of Landscape Architecture  30  27 Theological School  69  49
