Southeast Missouri State University said its 2016 fall enrollment remains strong with a 9.1 percent increase in the freshman class.

"We look forward to engaging the new class of students, breaking down barriers to persistence and helping them reach their goal of earning a college degree," said Lenell Hahn, director of Admissions.

Fall 2016 semester classes begin Aug. 22 at Southeast.
