YSU enrollment down 4.3 percent

Published: Tue, September 13, 2011 @ 1:33 p.m.


Enrollment at Youngstown State University is down 4.3 percent, or 654 students, this semester, according to official preliminary numbers released by the university today.

Headcount enrollment – the actual number of individual students enrolled – is 14,540 this semester, down from 15,194 last fall semester.

Full-time equivalent enrollment — a measure that is used in budgeting at both the university and state levels — is also down 3.5 percent.

Because YSU budgeted for a 1 percent increase in FTE enrollment this year, the drop in enrollment means a loss of about $4.5 million in what was budgeted for the university’s general fund. That is on top of a projected $1.7 million deficit already in the general fund budget.

Does this mean that the union is going to be giving money back instead of the recent bonuses that they received the past few years of increased enrollment?

That would offset the deficit created by the decrease in enrollment bay at least a couple of million dollars.

See you receive in god times, and you give back in bad.

I seem to recall YSU announcing tuition increases earlier this year. Now that their enrollment is down, they can lay-off some of the younger union members with children so the elders can keep thier 6 figure jobs.

The crazy thing about this is most professors and teachers are liberal and they teach their liberal ways to their students, who go on to graduate and get a job where they get laid off because they are the lowest employee on the totem pole of union ranking. Then they blame conservatives for the younger teachers' misfortunes.

YSU faculty did not receive any enrollment-based raises. YSU staff did, however. Check your facts.
