Enrollment at Mizzou Falls to Lowest Level Since 2008

Enrollment at Mizzou Falls to Lowest Level Since 2008

Circling the drain…

The University of Missouri has never recovered from the campus protests of 2015. Of course, they never did much to address the problem either.

Campus Reform reports:

Mizzou enrollment falls to lowest level since 2008

Amid ongoing fallout from the protests that rocked campus in 2015, the University of Missouri recently welcomed its smallest student body since 2008.

As Campus Reform has repeatedly reported, the embattled university has taken hit after hit, starting with a $32 million budget shortfall and a five-percent budget cut, followed by a seven-percent drop in freshmen enrollment heading into last school year.

More recently, Mizzou shuttered seven residence halls due to a drastic drop in enrollment, renting some of the vacant rooms out to sports fans to help make up for the school’s many financial woes, and cut 474 jobs.

Now, The Dothan Eagle reports that the university is facing the lowest levels of enrollment since 2008, with official numbers showing that enrollment is down 12.9 percent.

You know you screwed up when every incoming class, senior, junior, soph, freshman is smaller than last year’s. Seems they’re transferring out.

Will the last person to leave Mizzou please turn out the lights?

It’s too bad, it was once a respectable school.

Perhaps it will help the College Of The Ozarks, which is really one of the better and most underappreciated colleges in the country.
