Enrollment at U-T Shows 100% Increase

The University of Tennessee's winter quarter enrollment continued the post-war trend of a 100 per cent increase over pre-war records, despite attempts to limit new registrations because of overcrowded classrooms and inadequate living accommodations. Incomplete figures from the Knoxville, Memphis and Martin branches show a total enrollment of approximately 8,700, more than twice the pre-war winter quarter high of 4,261 registered in 1941. Enrollment at Knoxville was around 7,000; Memphis, 900 to 1,000; Martin 680.
