A fall census shows enrollment at the University of California, Merced has reached 6,195 students — a 7 percent increase over last year.

After evaluating a record application pool of more than 18,000, the university enrolled 1,757 new undergraduate students for the 2013 fall semester. The freshman class jumped by nearly 11 percent, from 1,495 to 1,654 — making it the largest freshman class in the campus’ history. In addition, the campus added 103 transfer students and 101 graduate students.

UC Merced is the closest University of California campus to the Lodi area.

About 37 percent of all undergraduate students are from the Central Valley, 34 percent from the greater Los Angeles area and 27 percent from the Central Coast and San Francisco Bay Area.

To help accommodate growth, the campus has added new housing and dining options.

Fall enrollment figures have come on the heels of a robust summer session. There were 1,880 students taking classes on campus this past summer, compared to 1,732 in 2012.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
