Why is enrollment falling at Rider and other N.J. private colleges? - Kelly Heyboer NJ Advance Media for

Freshmen enrollment at Rider was down—again. Only 865 new students had registered for classes, nearly 150 less freshmen than the previous year. Rider's total enrollment had been falling since 2009 and there were few signs the numbers would improve. Last month, Dell'Omo announced Rider was cutting 13 majors and laying off professors. The new president was frank: Rider just didn't have enough students to cover its bills. "This is a national trend. There is no question about it," Dell'Omo said. "Schools are all going through this and trying to tighten their belts and really allocate their resources in the most efficient ways possible."
