More state residents attending UW-Madison
More state residents are attending the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Data from the university's Office of the Registrar shows that 3,837 members of this fall's 6,339 freshman class are from Wisconsin.
That's the largest number of state residents in a freshman class since 2001, when 3,947 students were state residents.
African-American, Hispanic or Asian-American students make up nearly 11 percent of the class, the largest percentage in the past decade.
The class also includes 1,159 first-generation students.
Total enrollment at UW-Madison this fall was 43,256 students, up from 42,820 last year. Non-resident students make up nearly 26.8 percent of the total undergraduate population.
