To Exceed 6500
It Happened at NU ...
With slightly more than 5,500
students registered last week, the
estimated enrollment of 6,500 ap
peared within easy reach Monday
Dr. Floyd W. Hoover, acting
director of registration and rec
ords, and Dr. G. W. Rosenlof, di
rector of admissions, were opti
mistic about exceeding the 6,300
figure. Dr. Hoover estimated that
five hundred graduate students
would register before the Sept. 22
deadline and that College of
Medicine registration would total
approximately the same.
In addition, the assignment
committee registered quite a
large number of late students
Although last year's pre-class
registration totaled only a hun
dred more than this year's, the
final University population figure
was more than eight thousand
students. Dr. Hoover explained
that an entirely different count
ing system was used last year
and that therefore a comparison
of pre-class registration in the
two years is no accurate indica
tion of total registration.
While undergraduate registra
tion was scheduled to end last
week, registration in the graduate
college will continue until Sept.
