Since 2010 Radford University has seen an increase of 900 students.
Their goal is to reach 10,000
They're less than 100 students away from that number.
The university says they work with high school counselors to recruit students and when families come to visit Radford they show them the renovated classrooms and construction of the new academic classrooms and the student fitness center.
"They're really dedicated to having their students grow not only as scientist but researches and citizens of the surrounding areas and the United States," Luckele Milord a Radford University student said.
