Kirkwood busting at the seams

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - Students at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids may get a little more exercise than they signed up for.

That's because the parking lots are overflowing. The first day of class saw at least 2,200 more students than last year.

Many are adults who've been laid off, or students looking for the first two years of a four-year degree. The school is asking students to walk or carpool to class. 11 other Kirkwood Centers are also experiencing higher enrollments.
