Armstrong has enjoyed considerable success while working in his various administrative positions. Since Armstrong has been involved with enrollment, Notre Dame College has experienced unprecedented growth, more than doubling the total headcount of the College in only six years. Under Armstrong's guidance, Notre Dame College has enjoyed the fastest enrollment growth of any small private college in the nation in its Carnegie Classification. The College has recently constructed brand new residence halls and acquired existing buildings adjacent to the campus to facilitate this growth. As legal counsel for Notre Dame College, Armstrong manages all legal concerns facing the college and has navigated the college through four DOE inquiries and a complete overhaul of the Student Handbook.
