UNION COUNTY — Students are continuing to register, but USC Union already has its third-largest student body for a spring semester in its history.
The spring semester got under way at USC Union Monday morning with students returning to campus for the start of classes. While many were in class listening to lectures or in the library using its computers or elsewhere working from their own laptops or smartphones, some were in the Admissions Office registering for classes.
“Classes are filling up, but we have some slots left,” Enrollment Manager Brad Greer said Monday. “Classes started this morning, but late registration is through Friday, Jan. 17.”
Even as registration is continuing, Greer said the student body for the semester already numbers 552, making it the third-largest enrollment USC Union has ever had for a spring semester.
“Our enrollment in 2011 was 598 and 564 in 2012, so this year’s is our third-largest spring enrollment” Greer said. “Our average for spring since 2002 has been 422 so we’re well above average. In 2002, we had 292 so its been steady growth since.”
Greer said most of the students attending the spring semester are those who are continuing their education from the fall.
Those students will find something new in the form of two new instructors and the new classes they are teaching.
“We hired a new math instructor, Joe Anderson, who teaches everything from basic college math to calculus,” Greer said. “We also hired a new political science instructor, Christine Sixta Rhinehart, and one of the classes she’ll be teaching is ‘The American Chief Executive.’”
