Fort Hays State University, which has more than doubled its enrollment over the past decade, announced yet another all-time headcount record.

"We had significant increases in all three of our modalities, which are students on the Hays campus, students at our partner universities in China and students in our Virtual College," said Dr. Edward H. Hammond, FHSU president.

The university said 12,802 students enrolled for the fall semester. That is a 7.7-percent increase from the same time last year. It is also the largest enrollment in the university's 109-year history.

On-campus freshman also set a record, with 926 students. Hammond said that is the largest class since records have been kept.
