The popularity of Nipissing University is on the rise.

The Ontario University Application Centre says the number of students planning to attend Nipissing in September is up 7.6 percent compared to last June.

That’s well above the provincial increase of one percent.

First choice confirmations are up by 5.6 %, 2nd choice by 9.9 %, 3rd choice by 5.4% while the “greater than 3rd choice” category increased by nearly 19 % .

President Dr. Mike Degagne says this is very good news for Nipissing and is testament to the excellent work students and staff do to build a community that makes prospective students feel welcome.

Degagne credits a fantastic job by their recruiting team but also the faculty for their dedication to teaching and learning and in their commitment to recruiting students.

Nipissing says the increase is seen across the board in terms of academic programs.
