Record Number Enrolls At A&M For Long, Hot Summer Session
- ^ ^ , >
Texas A&M officials ex
pect a record to be set today
when the last student files
through registration lines in
the Richard Coke Building.
The all-time summer high
enrollment of 4,327 — re
corded last summer — may
be exceeded by more than 600,
according to university offi
cials. Today is the last day
of registration for the first
summer session.
The high enrollment was
evidenced by the scarcity of
housing reflected in a spot
check of community realtors.
The first session ends July
15, with the second term
starting July 18 and running
through August 26.
Registration began Mon
day in the Sbisa Dining Hall.
The new enrollment record re
flects a trend toward higher
enrollment which leads offi
cials to expect a sizable in
crease for the fall term.

Counseling and Testing Center
director said.

better grade,” Kerley said.
