This event represents the cooperation of faculty and staff across campus, with Linda MacMichael and Wendy Needels of Admissions, producing the affair. Bob Hannigan, vice provost for Enrollment Management said, "I do not think another campus in the CSU gets the cooperation that we do to put this program together. The results of that cooperation are superb. The feedback from students and parents is overwhelmingly positive."
The 1,473 students compares with 1,297 last year for a 13 percent increase. The important characteristic of these enrollees is that they have a 70 percent show-up rate. An additional program on that day, on-the-spot admission at Chico and Pleasant Valley High Schools helped the overall numbers.
