BATON ROUGE, La., (KNOE 8 News) - LSU says there are more black and Hispanic students enrolled this fall than at any other time in school history, an achievement the university credits to an expanded recruiting effort.

This fall's black student enrollment of 3,054 students just barely eclipses the previous high of 3,035 set in 2002 but represents a 200-student increase over last year.

LSU's Office of Budget and Planning says the school also saw Hispanic enrollment rise by 156 students this fall, increasing from 1,305 students compared with the previous high of 1,149 set last year.
