Enrollment in the College of Agriculture has been
increasing faster than the total University population,
according to Roy Arnold, assistant director of resident
In 1960, 606 students were enrolled in Ag College,
compared with 1,393 for first semester 1972.
Although this represents a drop of 39 students from last
semester, Arnold doesn't envision this as a trend.
Arnold said the long-range enrollment increase can be
attributed to several factors.
'There are more job opportunities for students in
agriculture when they graduate."
Arnold said all students who used the University placement
service found employment. He added that currently there is a
list of job openings on file for those interested in an
He said the Ag College has been unable to fill the demand
for agriculture education majors. Each year teachers from
other states have to be imported to fill openings, he added.
The Ag College continually has expanded the number of
programs offered, Arnold said. Both the food sciences
department and the natural resources department have been
added since 1960. These have helped increase enrollment, he
Other departments have increased the number of options
open to students, and this also attracts students to the college,
The number of women enrolled in the agriculture
curriculum also has increased. Arnold said 79 women are
enrolled this semester. A few years ago "women were an
exception," he said.
Arnold said women's liberation has broken down women's
mental barriers toward enrolling in Ag College. He said there
always have been some women interested in the Ag College
curriculum, but previously it was considered a man's field.
There also has been an increase in the number of transfer
students to the campus, Arnold said. It has been a national
trend for students to attend small schools for a year or two
and then transfer to a larger school, he said.
The Ag College is beginning to feel the effects of this trend,

he said. Ninety transfer students are enrolled this semester.
Enrollment in the College of Home Economics has shown a
similar increase, according to Gwendolyn Sailor, assistant
The enrollment for first semester in 1962 was 390,
compared with 1,048 for this fall's session.
The largest increase is in the freshmen and junior classes,
according to Sailor. The increase in the junior class is due
largely to transfer students and students changing majors, she
Other factors which have increased student interest in the
home economics college include its "social relevancy and job
opportunities," according to Sailor. She said the college offers
students majors that allow them to work in the community.
Job opportunities are available to graduates, she said. Few
jobs exist in Lincoln, but students willing to travel can find
jobs, and students enrolled in the college "know jobs exist,"
