Enrollment at Kirkwood Community College is up by more than 17 percent this semester. Washington Center Director Nancy Rash says it’s up by 42 percent locally. Rash attributes the increase to the current economic climate. Rash says there’s also more high school students looking to get a jump on their college credits, and traditional college students looking for a cheaper alternative to four year schools.
