UND named to list of 20 Most Popular National Universities

Posted on 1/24/2011

Recently, the University of North Dakota was named to the U.S. News & World Report's list of the 20 Most Popular National Universities based on yield rates for enrollment. The ranking was based on yield rates, meaning the number of students who chose to attend each institution versus the number of students accepted to the institution. On the list, UND ranked in ninth place, ahead of MIT and Princeton, among others.

Said Dr. Robert Boyd, Vice President for Student Affairs, "The University of North Dakota is proud to be in the company of many fine institutions. The special emphasis we place on staying in touch with students we recruit is our commitment to excellence in our student body. And, it is part of our commitment to the President's vision of having The University of North Dakota move from great to exceptional."

The University has enjoyed increased enrollment in recent years, including the 2010-2011 academic year. Boyd said, "Each of the students who we either have actively recruited or who have made contact with us are provided with a personal URL that allows us to personalize the information that we provide to them, and provide them information that is consistent with their interest areas. This active engagement with students, we believe, encourages students to seriously consider attending The University of North Dakota."
