According to the National Center for Education Statistics, a record 1.2 million students will receive college degrees this spring. Based on last year's data, the University of Wyoming can be expected to graduate approximately 2,300 students this May with three quarters or more receiving BA/BS degrees. An additional 21,000 plus full- and part-time students are enrolled at Wyoming's Community Colleges and of those, 6,621 had declared a field of study for the 1995-96 school year. Of those indicating a field of study, the largest areas of enrollment were Nursing (LPN, RN, Post RN, Other) with 714 enrollees, followed by Business Administration & Management with an enrollment of 674. Education and training are key vehicles individuals can use to enhance upward mobility in the labor market. Meet the competition.
