More students, more course offerings at ASU Havasu set for spring semester
While the baseball field at ASU Havasu will be a beehive of activity Thursday morning, the campus will be full of activity beginning Monday morning when classes resume following winter break.
Kim Rome, the university’s community outreach specialist in Havasu, said five new students are moving into the residence halls this spring.
“That’s a total of 34 students in the residence halls, our highest occupancy yet,” she said, noting that early fall 2019 applications are trending 15 percent above last year at the same time.
Rome declined to report what ASU Havasu’s total enrollment is for the second semester, except to say it is “way up.” According to a previous Today’s News-Herald story, the school had approximately 145 students as of August 2018.
New programs at the Havasu campus include secondary education certification (starts spring 2019). The elementary education degree starts in the fall of 2019.
Rome also mentioned another new feature.
“Our brand new Open Scale initiative starts Jan. 8,” she said. “It’s an ASU Lake Havasu/Lake Havasu High School partnership to offer concurrent enrollment courses for high school students.”
