THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

By LeiLani Golden - bio | email

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) –Thomas University set an enrollment record this fall with more than one-thousand students taking classes.

The private university has grown every semester the last years.

Officials credit the school's solid programs, graduate success, and ongoing campus renovations for the increase in students.

They say even current students help bring in more students.

"The voice of our current students is probably our strongest voice," says Gary Bonvillian, Thomas University's President. 

"We have very high retention and graduation rates that we've been nationally recognized for. And word has gotten out that if you come here you have a better chance of getting that degree."

Thomas University's campus can accommodate 1000 students. But they say only about 700 attend daily because the rest are taking online courses.
