ENROLLMENT GROWTH CONTINUES AT WSU SPOKANE
        SPOKANE, Wash. -- Washington State University at Spokane's full-time enrollment for the 1998-99 academic year is the highest ever for the campus, which is entering its 10th year. The spring enrollment of 349 represents an increase of 58.35 full-time equivalent students over spring 1997, and brings the year's average FTE enrollment to 382.65.
        In headcount terms, the total number of students enrolled for spring semester is 438, up 9.2 percent from last year's figure of 401.
        "In addition to the students who have recently entered our new master's programs in the design disciplines, we have students taking some undergraduate courses at EWU to prepare them for the new Master of Technology Management program," said campus executive officer and dean William H. Gray.
        "Given the level of inquiries we're receiving, we anticipate rapid and continued growth in that program as students fulfill those requirements and move on to graduate coursework here," he said. "In addition, we're working with a number of academic partners to develop collaborative offerings that will expand the range of opportunities for higher education in Spokane."
