5,383 students enrolled at Southern Oregon University for the upcoming term — the school's highest spring-term head count ever.

The bad economy and increasing numbers of students from California seeking lower tuition are among the factors driving the record enrollment numbers.

The count, which includes all students, even if they're taking one class, is a 2.7% increase over spring a year ago.

The university reported a 4.1% jump in full-time equivalent enrollment compared to spring last year, for an FTE of 3,938. This is the highest FTE since 2003.
