Enrollment Strategy

It takes a week, but the undergraduate dean of admissions signs each and every offer.

Marquette attracts students who demonstrate a commitment to academics and service, and experience with leadership.

Marquette’s Dean of Undergraduate Admissions Roby Blust crossed the final “t” for Blus“t” on the last offer of admission and brought to a successful close the recruitment season for Marquette’s 2006 freshman class.

He had signed every single acceptance letter, more than 7,000 in all, and added a personal note of congratulations to more than a few. And the one thing that stood out — beyond the fact that the university was celebrating a sixth consecutive year of record applications — was that the students applying for membership in the next freshman class are absolutely stellar.

“In terms of academics, commitment to service, and experience with leadership, this is far and away the best class we’ve seen,” he says.

Marquette has room for 1,800 freshmen this fall. Blust is now resting his writing hand.
