MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State University is still working to increase enrollment despite challenges presented by the coronavirus pandemic.
Enrollment at the Manhattan campus has been declining for the past five years or so, and the student body hit a 20-year low in fall 2019 with about 21,700 students, The Manhattan Mercury reported.
To turn things around, the university is offering virtual tours to prospective students in April and May, which is typically the busiest time of the year for campus visits.
