The numbers come from <a href="http://www.census.gov/prod/2013pubs/p20-571.pdf">a recent U.S. Census Bureau report</a>.<p>That brisk uptick in Latino college enrollment is part of a trend that began in the mid-2000s: The share of college students who were Latino grew from 11 percent in 2006 to 17 percent last year.
