The new school year is just around the corner, and local colleges are in the summer rush to register students.
New and transfer students took part in registration Friday at East Central Community College in Decatur. About 150 students participated. Another registration day is set for Aug. 3.
School officials say they're looking forward to another good year with high enrollment.
"We had one of the few increases in the state last year, and now we look like we're even with that," said Dr. Randall Lee. "We're hoping for another record enrollment. We're bursting at the seams basically, so looking good."
Fall classes start Aug. 16 for day students. Night and online classes start Aug. 20.
