On This Day in IUPUI History: May 30, 1976

May 30, 1976. 

On this day, the Green Sheet, the IUPUI campus newsletter, announced that IUPUI led Indiana University campuses in the number of students enrolled in first-summer-term classes. The numbers were:

IUPUI            7619

Bloomington  5968 

South Bend   2451

Gary             1675

New Albany   1512

(Fort Wayne, Kokomo, and Richmond had no classes during first summer term.)

The IUPUI figure was a 4.7 percent increase from the previous year. The growth was consistent with the rapid enrollment growth that occurred at IUPUI during the 1970s, a period when the campus expanded physically and enriched its study offerings to meet the needs of the metropolis.
