The records: Enrollment numbers at the state's public universities.
Why you'd want them: To learn more about how many students are attending taxpayer-supported schools in Kansas.
Where you get the records: From the Kansas Board of Regents' Web site, www.kansasregents.org. Click on the "Enrollment Headcount for State Universities" link under the "Forms and Documents" menu.
How much it will cost: The information is free.
