"I am absolutely thrilled over this increase in student enrollment," said Interim Chancellor Peggy Valentine. This rise indicates that students are aware of the quality yet affordable world-class education that Fayetteville State University offers. A tremendous amount of hard work went into increasing these numbers and I want to thank Enrollment Management, especially the Office of Admissions for all of their hard work, particularly during this difficult time."
