This fall, the University of Nevada, Reno saw a 17 percent increase in out-of-state enrollment. Steve Maples is the Director of Undergraduate Admissions for the school. He spoke with our public radio partner KNPR in Las Vegas, saying he hopes this trend continues.
“The first thing we want to grow is talented students," says Maples. "We want to grow in diversity of students, and we want to grow in geography.”
Besides attracting out-of-state students, Maples also wants to keep them here, something he says is getting easier.
