Univ of Ozarks SHATTERS enrollment record...

Okay, 2016 they were like 1000 +, 2017 they went down to 600 +. They are yo-yoing in enrollment.

A total of 872 students are enrolled at U of O for the Fall 2018 Semester, the most in the University’s 184-year history and a 15 percent increase over last year’s previous record of 755 students.

Enrollment at Ozarks has increased 49 percent since 2013, when 585 students were enrolled.

And the branch campus of Ark Tech is in the City of Ozark, 30 minutes from U of Ozarks.

Sad. So unbelievably sad that someone knows so very little about the school he attended. I haven't been on campus in 16 years and I know everything that goes on at ATU.

If I remember correctly, College of the Ozarks is one of the ones that has free education.

You work, not sure what that has to do with athletics, but it is interesting.

Just to avoid confusion I'll note that College of the Ozarks and University of the Ozarks are different institutions. CofO has low admittance standards, is regionally focused, you can work 15 hours a week for a "free" education, and they have over $500m endowment. An NAIA school.

That looks like a good program but in case you are confusing the two. College of the Ozarks is a NAIA school in Missouri and was previously known as School of the Ozarks. University of the Ozarks is a D3 school in Arkansas and its former name was College of the Ozarks. They never had the same name at the same time.

My great aunt was a big donor to this college.They would have accepted me for my low grades. I think they also work with kids that have needs that they could not get at other schools.
