The University
UW Remains Sixth
in Total Enrollment
T HE UNIVERSITY of Wisconsin
    remains sixth in the nation in
total enrollments this year; the Wis-
consin State Universities are eighth,
up from 1 1th place last year in the
annual School and Society magazine
compilations by Dr. Garland G.
Parker of the University of Cincin-
nati.
  In total enrollment, the University
of Wisconsin is listed sixth with
57,052 students, the Wisconsin State
Universities eighth with 50,996. In
full-time students, the Wisconsin
State Universities are sixth with
45,618, while the University of Wis-
consin is seventh with 44,267.
  While the figures in the School and
Society tabulations differ somewhat
from official institutional enrollment
figures because of slightly different
definitions of enrollment and cut-off
times for reporting, the relative size
of institutions is accurate. Another
comparison would be the 1967 on-
campus enrollments of 54,997 for
the University of Wisconsin and
50,996 for Wisconsin State Universi-
ties.
  The top 10 institutions in total
enrollment are listed by School and
Society as: State University of New
York, 225,572; California State Col-
leges, 212,376; City University of
New York, 143,494; University of
California, 120,383; University of
Minnesota, 64,558; University of
Wisconsin, 57,052; University of
Texas, 53,468; Wisconsin State Uni-
versities, 50,996; University of Illi-
nois, 47,974; and Indiana University,
47,642.
