Enrollment Drops Again At SIU

Enrollment is down at Southern Illinois University for the ninth-straight year.

Enrollment is 17,964 students this fall, a drop of 883 students, or 4.7 percent, from last year.

Officials say a small 2010 freshman class is to blame for the drop in enrollment, but the freshman class this year is the largest in 20 years.

Freshman enrollment is 2,571 students this fall, a rise of 285 students, or 12.5 percent, from last year.
