Students walk between classes at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Okla.

A record number of freshmen are enrolled at the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University this fall.

OU is welcoming more than 4,700 students, and OSU is bringing in more than 4,600.

OU’s class is 2% bigger and OSU’s is 9% bigger when compared to last fall.

Although overall enrollment within Oklahoma higher education institutions is stagnating, the state’s two largest universities are continuing to show growth.

OU will have a total of roughly 30,000 students on its campuses this year, while OSU will have almost 25,000.

Classes start at OU and OSU next week.
