For the first time in its history, the Xavier University Office of

Admissions received more than 10,000 applications for the 2012-13 school year, a 17 percent increase from this time last year. Out of the 10,518 applications received, about 7,500 will be offered admission. The University also saw an

increase in applicants from areas outside of Ohio, Kentucky

and Indiana, including a significant growth in applications from the Southwestern states such as Arizona, California and Colorado, and the Chicago area. In efforts to expand recruitment alongside University expansion, the Office of Admissions has extended their recruiting staff on campus, as well as added regional recruiters in the Boston, Denver

and Chicago areas. "Over the past four to five years we have been consistently more assertive in our efforts and have recruited more nationally," Aaron Meis, dean of admission, said. "We have also partnered with the Office

of University Communication to reach more students across the country and contact them more frequently."

The Office of Admissions hopes to meet and exceed enrollment goals to keep plans for University expansion

and development moving forward. "Xavier is really at a turning point," Meis said. "10,000 applications is a reflection of the strong interest in Xavier nationwide and

evidence that our academic reputation continues to strengthen and grow."
