Total Student Body Statistics

While it is often necessary to analyze a particular population of students for specific data, it is also important to look at "the big picture" of the SSU student body. Examining our student population as a whole helps the Office of Reporting and Analytics understand current socioeconomic statuses, enrollment bottlenecks, graduation rates, and trends in academic courses of study.
