More sobering indications from campus: Enrollment is down again.
Official numbers wont be available for a little while, but the university provost told the Manhattan Rotary Club this past week that enrollment has dropped this fall. Its been down now for five straight years; it was already off by 10 percent since the 2014-15 school year, when it peaked at just under 25,000.
Weve said this before, and well say it again: That is the biggest problem in our area.
