Enrollment In Connecticut Community Colleges Down 6 Percent - JACQUELINE RABE THOMAS, Hartford Courant

Thousands fewer students showed up last week for the start of classes at the state's community colleges — a 6.1 percent drop in students since last fall semester. "We don't offer the programs they are looking for," Housatonic Community College President Paul Brodie told the Board of Regents' finance committee on Thursday. His college, in Bridgeport, enrolled 1 percent fewer students this year. Other colleges with sizable drops included Asnuntuck in Enfield (10 percent), Gateway in New Haven (9 percent) and Quinebaug Valley in Killingly (8 percent).
