The North Manchester-based university said in a statement it had 441 first-year students, up 20 percent from last fall. Total university enrollment was 1,479, up nearly 10 percent from a year ago.

The enrollment gain was boosted by a 30 percent increase in transfers and from new enrollment at the College of Pharmacy, the university said.
