Rice President David Leebron presented his State of the University report to the Student Association Senate meeting Monday evening.

Leebron said the university has grown stronger over the past decade, evidenced by the more than doubling of the number of applicants and the increased diversity of the student body. While the enrollment in the school of engineering has doubled over the past 10 years, that of other schools has been constant.

The town hall ended with a question-and-answer session, during which Leebron responded to questions from the crowd regarding topics such as sustainability, the relationship between the student body and Student Judicial programs and undergraduate teaching.
