Harding University expects enrollment to hit 7,000
SEARCY — Harding University has had a record enrollment for 25 consecutive years, and this year’s expected enrollment of 7,000 students will be up from last year’s 6,810.
“In the last seven years, Harding’s enrollment has averaged growing by more than 200 students per year,” said Heather Williams, director of news services at Harding.
University President David B. Burks credited the increased enrollment to new programs and relatively low tuition.
“The variety of programs has some impact, and the health sciences are attracting new students we wouldn’t normally have,” Burks said. “We have a relatively low tuition [compared to] other private universities. We are seen by parents as a good value, and we also have generous scholarships.”
FeedbackDr. David Burks’s visionary leadership, guided by servanthood heart, and deep commitment mind to defend the church of Christ from liberalism is seen in Harding�s enrollment average growing by more than 200 students per year.
Harding is the best University within the brotherhood.
Well done, Dr. Burks, and administration for this awesome work!Laws kandamwalaAugust, 19 2011Harding has such a great Christian atmosphere about it and it is wonderful to think that my daughter (a freshman this year) will blossom in this environment. The tuition is one of the lowest in Christian Colleges and they do give generous scholarships. The different degrees offered are also very good.SuzanneAugust, 23 2011
