Fall Enrollment at SIUC Up

Fall enrollment at SIUC up slightly, just a bit  over 2%  Total attendance is up 25 people but freshmen enrollment increased about 2.4% and transfers are up 2.3%. Still really too small to consider significant and, after 10 years of steady decline, 'twill need more than 1 year to show that the university has "turned the corner",


  1. SIUC's version of Reagan's "trickle down economics" is "trickle up enrollments." As you say we shall see but the departure of two leading figures, one of whom whose initial arrival began the decline, should make a difference.

  2. I hope so too, though I fear the origins of the decline date back to the early 90s and will take a good 2 decades to overcome.
