Cresson, Pa. – Mount Aloysius College has announced that it is continuing with substantial enrollment growth compared to previous years. The College welcomed 410 new full-time undergraduate students last month, up from 375 on the first day of classes last year. This 9 percent growth has resulted in the College’s largest incoming class in 10 years. The new student growth was accompanied by a six percent retention growth in returning students.

“Our strategic plan is called Growing Greater, and that is exactly what Mount Aloysius is doing,” college president John McKeegan said. “It is a particularly exciting time to be a Mountie, because we are in a unique position of expanding enrollment, at a time when national and regional trends reflect declines. I am excited to see where we go from here, as we build further on partnerships with UPMC Altoona, Penn Highlands Healthcare, and Encompass Health; on our NSA/Homeland Security recognized excellence in Cyber Defense; and defend two AMCC championships (in men’s soccer and baseball).  We are grateful for the hard work and dedication of our admissions team for facilitating this extraordinary enrollment growth.”
