Efforts to count every student living on the Stephen F. Austin State University campus gets under way today. SFA's Resident Life staff is receiving census packets that will be handed to students living in dorms and campus apartments starting Monday, and the deadline to turn them in is April 14.
The 2010 Census is landing on the doorsteps of SFA less than three months after the university recorded a record high enrollment of 12,029 students in January. That number is 1,300 students more than the school recorded in the spring semester of 2000 when the last census was taken. Read more about the census in "The Daily Sentinel."
