BANGOR — Enrollment at Husson University has increased this fall by nearly 100 students over last year.

“Growth in our enrollment speaks to a need in our community to offer a quality education at a reasonable price,” President Robert Clark said in a press release issued last month. “And, although our numbers are growing, we continue to offer the close-knit collegiate atmosphere and one-on-one attention that so many college-bound students are seeking.”

More than 3,600 students are enrolled in classes at Husson’s Bangor campus, which includes the New England School of Communication, and its satellite campuses.
