Austin Peay attracts most Hispanic students among state colleges

The Tennessean reports that Austin Peay had 438 students among its fall 2004 enrollees, the most of any public college or university in the state of Tennessee. That number represented 21% growth in the Hispanic population of APSU from 2003 to 2004 and 21% since 1999. Middle Tennessee State University had 415 Hispanic students, the second greatest total.

"Ramon Magrans - APSU professor of Languages & Literature and an expert in Latin American and Cuban culture - attributes much of the increased Hispanic enrollment to the university's small class sizes, an active Hispanic student body and growth at Fort Campbell."
