College Continues to Grow
Thousands of students have recently graduated with college degrees all over North Central Florida.
And in Marion County, one college is graduating more students than ever before.
The College of Central Florida was recently named among the top 10 percent of colleges in the nation according to the Aspen Institute.
A total of 561 students walked the stage just last week, making it their largest graduating class since the college's inception in 1957.
The college primarily serves 18 thousand students in Marion, Citrus and Levy Counties. 62 percent of students are women.
"We are continuing to grow," College President, Dr. James D. Henningsen told TV20. "We've had record enrollment, almost, the last five years, up fifty percent."
The college recently added two bachelor programs.
A Business and Organizational Management degree with several specific concentrations and a Bachelor in Early Childhood Education.
