Gazette publishes story on enrollment

The (Cedar Rapids) Gazette published a story about enrollment on July 1, 2021, featuring an interview with Vice President for Enrollment Management Wendy Beckemeyer.

In the article, Beckemeyer said, “We’ve seen really strong increases in a number of places. We have more students of color. We have more engineers, more football players, more students from Iowa. Overall—across many, many more segments—we’re seeing increases.”

She told The Gazette’s Vanessa Miller that the goal for the new class was 330 students, but that Cornell is expecting more than 350 students.

Beckemeyer also said Cornell’s “Iowa Promise Scholarship” helped with Cornell’s enrollment numbers.
