Another record-breaking enrollment for MU.
Students continue flocking to Mizzou, making fall 2012 the 11th straight year of record-breaking enrollment. Total enrollment is up more than 2.7 percent from fall 2011’s figure, with the largest increase coming from out-of-state freshmen.

MU employs two full-time recruiters in the Chicago area, partially explaining the more than 20 percent increase in students from Illinois.
Compared to 2011, enrollment from the 10 other SEC states increased 2.8 percent. Louisiana had the largest increase at nearly 19 percent.
