Lenoir-Rhyne University
Press Release

HICKORY, N.C. – Lenoir-Rhyne University announced its fall 2019 enrollment for the institution as students arrived back on campus to begin classes Monday, Aug. 26. The University has more than 2,750 students enrolled, including graduate students at the Hickory, North Carolina; Asheville, North Carolina; and Columbia, South Carolina, campuses. Enrollment increased more than 2% compared to last year, marking 11 consecutive years of enrollment growth.

The University welcomed 463 first-year students and 99 transfer and adult students. A total of 909 students will live in campus housing, 300 of which are first-year students. Nearly 900 students are enrolled in more than 30 graduate programs through The Graduate School, which offers classes on the Hickory campus, as well as the Asheville and Columbia Centers and Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary, also located in Columbia.

“Student success is at the heart of everything we do at Lenoir-Rhyne” said Rachel Nichols, vice president for enrollment management. “Our strategic initiatives are centered on making student success a priority. The fact that our enrollment has demonstrated steady growth for more than a decade shows that students and their families recognize the value of a Lenoir-Rhyne education and degree.”

International student enrollment also increased, with 92 degree seeking and seven nondegree seeking students representing 32 countries. United Kingdom, Spain, Canada, and Germany are the top countries represented by international students on LR’s campus.
