Campus of the University of Miami

How has the number of students changed from when University of  Miami first opened in 1925, to now?

In the University of Miami, the number of students from 1925, to 2014 has been huge!    In over 88 years this is the data I have found...

Work Solved:

There have been 15,053 students join University of Miami over 88 years... But whats that in a percent? We know the amount increased. The work I did solving for the percent is down below.

In The Next 88 Years...

Since the percent of change was 2688.04% from 88 years, what would it be like in the next 88 years? In 2100? It would be another increase... The work I did is below.

My reaction to these results isn't to surprising. I knew that there would be more people, after 88 years in the college then less. Colleges have barely ever had fewer students over the years... unless they're shutting down or closing. I choose this topic, because I was interested in it. I really like to learn about different colleges, and University of Miami really stuck out to me. Plus, I feel to many people in a college is overwhelming so that's another reason I picked UM.
