General Discussion Forum / More students enrolled at UNC System campuses
« on: September 17, 2020, 09:40:13 PM »
Even in a pandemic, more students enrolled at UNC System campuses than ever before

The UNC System announced record-high enrollment for the third year in a row, with more than 242,000 students at its universities this fall.

Not every campus saw more students on campus this fall, but there was an overall increase of 1% for undergraduate and graduate students combined.

Appalachian State University, Fayetteville State University, N.C. A&T State University, UNC-Chapel Hill, UNC Charlotte, UNC Pembroke, UNC Wilmington and Western Carolina University each reported record enrollment.

East Carolina University, Elizabeth City State University, N.C. Central University and Winston-Salem State University saw increases too, but not new records.

For N.C. A&T, an increase in online instruction comes with a price

GREENSBORO — To stay healthy during a pandemic, a record number of N.C. A&T students are opting to take classes without stepping foot in a classroom.

But the increase in online instruction comes with a price: Chancellor Harold Martin told university trustees Monday that A&T is expecting a "worst case" revenue shortfall of about $14 million this fall because of several interconnected factors related to COVID-19. Martin said A&T can cover projected declines in tuition, housing, dining and athletics revenues.

Thirty-eight percent of A&T's students are taking all of their classes online this fall. Only 5 percent are taking all of their classes in an A&T classroom. The rest are enrolled in hybrid classes that mix both online and in-person instruction.

Sidelined A&T marching band stays engaged despite pandemic

By Dawn DeCwikiel-Kane

GREENSBORO — Don't look for N.C. A&T's famous Blue and Gold Marching Machine this fall in halftime shows and competitions, at community events or in parades.

Like A&T football, the fall performance season of the award-winning marching band has been sidelined because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

But Kenneth Ruff, A&T's director of bands, wants to keep band members engaged, educated — and healthy — while they can't perform live for fans.

After defections, Coppin State and UMES sticking with MEAC, but Morgan State remains quiet

JUL 07, 2020 AT 4:00 PM

North Carolina A&T, Florida A&M and Bethune-Cookman left the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference recently, but two other Historically Black Colleges and Universities in the state said they are staying put and the conference’s commissioner expressed confidence in the league’s viability.

“I’d like to put their concerns at rest simply because we are a vibrant conference with a tremendous history and an even brighter future,” Dennis E. Thomas said Tuesday morning. “We are celebrating our 50th anniversary, and we are excited about that because there’s been some truly phenomenal and talented coaches and student-athletes.”


But Morgan State, the largest of the three HBCUs in Maryland and the only one of the three that sponsors football and men’s and women’s basketball, referred inquiries to the league’s media relations office.
