CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - Mount Mercy College reports record enrollment for the fall semester.  The school says the total for the fall semester is 1,666 students.  Last fall, enrollment was 1,555 students.

In a news release, Mount Mercy President Christopher Blake said, "We are pleased with this record-breaking enrollment. It is truly a testament to the fact that individuals seeking to further their education - whether in our undergraduate or graduate programs - find value in Mount Mercy's distinct brand of professional, practical, and faith-inspired education that prepares students to lead successful, purposeful lives."

Mount Mercy administrators believe several key factors contributed to the record-breaking enrollment, including a significant increase in enrollment among transfer and graduate students and a strong retention rate among undergraduate students.
