As Kwantlen Polytechnic University celebrates its 30th year, the 2013-2014 school year is proving to be the school's largest, with the most number of students enrolled in the university's history.
According to numbers released by KPU, the current semester has 14,382 students enrolled as of Sept. 9 across the school's four campuses.
For the Surrey campus in particular, there are 8,567 students enrolled in classes, which is counted as any student registered in at least one course at the campus.
"KPU's importance to the region increases along with its enrolments. We are proud to contribute to the economic, social and cultural development of our communities," said KPU president and vice-chancellor Dr. Alan Davis in a release.
