Northridge Remains Third-Largest Cal State University

Cal State Northridge remains the third-largest campus in the California State University system this year, boosted by an 8.2 percent growth in enrollment during fall 2001 that brought total campus enrollment to a near-record 31,448 students.

With many new and rebuilt facilities, popular Northridge President Jolene Koester well into her second year on campus and a series of successes buoying spirits, the university's fall 2001 enrollment is the second highest in Northridge history. The all-time high was 31,575 students in fall 1988.

Northridge also retained its leadership as one of the largest campuses in the 23-campus CSU system, with only San Diego State and Long Beach State serving more students. Northridge's 8.2 percent increase in enrollment for fall 2001 added 2,382 students to the 29,066-student population of fall 2000.

Northridge, and the broader CSU system, offer the most affordable, high quality higher education of any state university system in the nation. Independent reviewers recently said the university "stands as a model to other public urban institutions of higher education."
