State of Darton Address

August 19, 2002

Registration for fall semester at Darton College starts tomorrow, with classes getting underway Wednesday. Darton College is expected to have an increase in enrollment of between 3 to 5 percent.

Today Darton President Dr. Peter Sireno gave a state of the college assesment to the school's faculity and staff. There are 40 new staff members at Darton, anticipating an enrollment of 35-hundred students. That is based on pre-registration figures.

Dr. Sireno said despite budget cuts, he plans to push ahead with plans to bring on campus housing to Darton by 2004. "This will provide a home for some students who would not have anywhere else to go under the semester system." 

 Darton College hopes the increased enrollment for the fall, will help offset the 5 percent budget cut ordered by the state last year. Darton's annual budget is 11 million dollars.
