National College Enrollment
SIUC's enrollment is down, while overall college and university enrollment is at an all time high. Even better, tuition rates nationally are up 4-7%, while attendance at 2 and 4 year colleges is up 2% from last year, with 41% of all 18 to 21 year olds enrolled at one or the other. The number of high school drop outs has dropped steadily from 1975 as well, meaning there are more high school graduates to recruit from, yet they're not coming to SIUC.
