Its total enrollment for Fall of 2020 was 29,417, and baccalaureate degrees awarded from 2020-2021 amounted to 7,420.

Museum No No
Satellite campus Yes Yes
Farm larger than 2 hectares or 5 acres Yes No
Agricultural experiment station larger than 2 hectares or 5 acres No No

The Hanover Farm is excluded because it is currently unused, with unmanaged grounds.
