The Princeton Review announcement came as the fall semester is entering full swing at Shorter University. Classes began Thursday, Aug. 16, and 1,528 traditional students are currently enrolled at Shorter. This is the third consecutive year that Shorter’s fall enrollment has topped 1,500.
“We are pleased with the recognition that The Princeton Review has again given us, but we are even more pleased that a large number of students have chosen to be part of the Shorter family,” said Shorter University President Dr. Don Dowless. “Serving our students is the focus of everything we do. We provide students with the highest-caliber education within a Christ-centered environment.”
The fall semester has already been a busy one at Shorter. The semester began with the university welcoming 51 new full-time faculty members. Shorter’s athletic teams have started their first year competing in NCAA Division II schedules.
The Hawks football team defeated Division I Campbell University to open its 2012 season. Shorter will have its home opener on Saturday, Sept. 22, as the Hawks welcome Division I Charleston Southern University to Barron Stadium. That game will be a centerpiece of the university’s Homecoming festivities.
In addition, students in Shorter’s School of Fine and Performing Arts are also preparing for a full slate of musical and theatre productions. The student performance season begins Tuesday, Oct. 2, as Shorter Theatre presents its fall play, The Ruby Sunrise, by Rinne Groff. Additional arts events are listed online at http://www.shorter.edu/academics/arts/calendar.htm.
