Lynn University’s incoming class is officially the largest in six years
Published Sep. 18, 2013
The drop/add process for the fall 2013 semester is over and Lynn University has 585 new students on its campus for classes—the largest new student enrollment in six years. This is six percent higher than last year’s new student official enrollment number of 551.
These numbers confirm the strong growth projected in August.
“Now that our drop/add period is over, we are thrilled to officially welcome our largest incoming class since 2007,” Gareth Fowles, vice president of enrollment management, said. “Through the hard work of our staff and faculty, Lynn is becoming better known for its innovative approach to teaching, diverse student body and an intentional focus on student success. We think as more people learn about us, more want to come experience it for themselves.”
- Lynn’s total student population is at 2,260 with 1,719 total undergraduate students.
- There are 585 undergraduates and 219 graduate students in the incoming class.
- There are 173 new international students this year, up three percent from the 168 that came to Lynn last year.

In addition to being the largest since 2007, the incoming class is also unique as they are the first to participate in Lynn University’s iPad initiative—one of the most extensive tablet-based learning efforts in all of American higher education that will save the new students hundreds of dollars on text books.
Additionally, all of Lynn’s current students will be enjoying an exciting academic year at the institution that has seen the rollout of new food services and will see the opening of the new Bobby Campbell Stadium, the construction of the new International Business Center and the addition of a new Central Energy Plant that will reduce the school’s utility usage.
