PORTLAND, Ore. -- Enrollment at Oregon's seven public universities has leveled off after years of sharp increases during and after the Great Recession.
The Oregon University System announced Thursday that more than 103,000 students enrolled for the fall term. That's a record, but it represents an increase of less than 2 percent from last fall. Enrollment gains of more than 5 percent were the norm from 2008 until 2010.
Most of this year's increase was at Oregon State University, where enrollment increased by 1,532 students. The state's other large schools -- the University of Oregon and Portland State University -- had basically no change from 2012.
The number of international students jumped by 15 percent. Officials have sought such students because they pay higher tuition and bring a global flavor to campuses.
