SAN MARCOS - Texas State has experienced yet another year of record population growth for both the freshman class and overall enrollment. Enrollment totals 35,568 students, a 4 percent increase from last fall.

This is the 16th consecutive year the university has set an enrollment record.

There are 5,181 freshmen enrolled this fall, a 22 percent increase from fall 2012. Provost Eugene Bourgeois said the university does not plan to cap enrollment in the future but will target what it thinks is the appropriate freshman class size.

University officials have authorized the creation of 30 new permanent full-time faculty positions to fill because of the increase in students.

Total Hispanic student and African American enrollment for fall 2013 has increased by 12 percent and 14 percent respectively from fall 2012.
