As Johnson prepares to celebrate its 120th year in 2014, a major milestone has been reached. This year's record enrollment of 1031 (up from 954 in 2012) marks the first time in the history of the institution enrollment has exceeded 1000 students. This total includes undergraduate (830), master's (166), and Ph.D. (35) students enrolled at Johnson University Tennessee and Johnson University Online.
Exceeding 1000 students has been an enrollment goal for several years and perhaps the beginning of even more things to come. "We are excited to see another record enrollment year and equally as pleased to know there are more students committed to serving Christ," said Tim Wingfield, Vice President for Enrollment Services at Johnson University Tennessee.
This record enrollment comes on the heels of a string of milestones for the University in 2013. In July, Johnson announced a merger with what is now known as Johnson University Florida and became a national University system with campuses in Tennessee, Florida, and online. In September, JUTN introduced a new athletic mascot, the Royals.
Plans are already in place to increase enrollment on the Florida and Online campuses. "We know there is a need for affordable Christian education and Johnson is committed to using our facilities and online capabilities to effectively meet these needs," said Wingfield.
