“A double-digit increase in enrolment is always a good news story, but a near 30-percent increase in new students is a remarkable achievement that speaks to the hard work of the entire Booth team,” says Dr. Donald Burke, president of Booth University College. “I am very proud of our team and of their focused and effective work.”
Compared to September 2012 figures, in the fall 2013 semester Booth University College recorded a 29-percent increase in the number of new students on the Winnipeg campus, a 21.5-percent increase in the total number of students on campus, and a 39-percent increase in the distance education credit hours sold.
This September, Booth University College also officially welcomed its new vice president, academic and dean, Dr. Marjory Kerr. At the opening convocation and installation service, Kerr encouraged students to heed God's calling on their lives, saying, “As students you have the opportunity to experience, recognize and respond to God's calling for you … watch for it, and when you do, it will come.”
