WKU faculty and staff made the most of their time in January, resulting in record numbers for Winter Term 2017.
WKU Winter Term reported record high course enrollment, with 2,268 students taking classes during the three-week term between the fall and spring semesters – the most students taking courses since its inception in 2006.
According to Winter Term Coordinator Alicia Bingham, Winter Term 2017 had record numbers in several areas, including course enrollment and student credit hour production. Study Abroad enrollment during Winter Term also doubled.
“Students are utilizing winter term to stay on track toward graduation,” Bingham said. “The intensive course format gives students the opportunity to quickly pick up courses they have missed or focus on a more challenging course and lighten their load during fall or spring.”
Bingham stated that online courses continue to be the most popular format during Winter Term, but that enrollment face-to-face Winter Term classes increased this year.
“Many international students stay in Bowling Green during the holiday break, and they are able to take advantage of additional classes that are offered within their degree programs,” she said.
“Winter Term benefits faculty, too,” she added.
Over 200 faculty taught courses during Winter Term 2017, with 22 receiving incentives for having over 20 students enrolled in their classes.
“Winter Term 2017 was a success, and we are looking forward to summer 2017 having good numbers, too.”
