PUEBLO — CSU Pueblo is reporting the highest summer attendance since 2013.
The school says 20 percent more students took classes this summer semester. The university says students felt more comfortable taking online courses during the stay-at-home order.
They also say high school students that graduated during the stay-at-home order helped boost the numbers, with many incoming freshmen signing for summer courses.
"CSU-Pueblo and our students or faculty and staff are all about grit. No determination, that's just a part of who we are and I think we saw that through this entire pandemic", said Chrissy Holiday, CSU-Pueblo Vice President of Enrollment and Retention.
For fall, CSU Pueblo expected at least a 10 percent drop in attendance numbers but only saw a three percent decrease.
