university enrollment by geography
fI
ollowing statistical summaries provided in the annual bulletins of Wake Forest University,
have prepared the following record, year by year, of enrollment in the University, giving
the percentage of students from North Carolina, the percentage from other states, and the
percentage from foreign countries. (The percentages are to the nearest decimal point.) I have
also, each year, indicated the top ten states other than North Carolina from which students came.
Several things are immediately obvious in these statistics: (1) the slight but continuing
decline in the percentage of North Carolina students enrolled; (2) the consistent strength of
several other Southern states as sources of Wake Forest students (Virginia, South Carolina,
and, increasingly, Florida and Georgia); (3) the similar dependability of a cluster of states to
the North (New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New York); (4) the growing significance of
Mid-Western states like Ohio and New England states like Connecticut; and (5) the relatively
unchanging number of foreign students, typically about 30.

Maryland, Pennsylvania, Florida, New York, South Carolina, Georgia, Ohio, and Tennessee),
and 1% from foreign countries.
