Fewer Ohioans going to college amid economic recovery - Jona Ison, Times Recorder

Ohio’s regional college campuses and community colleges are being pushed to work together to consolidate some services as enrollment drops for a fifth year. Fall enrollment statewide was down 1 percent, according to preliminary headcounts, fueled by a 3 percent decline at regional campuses and a 4 percent decline at community colleges. Ohio Board of Regents Chancellor John Carey said part of that decline reflects Ohio’s boosted economy. “We saw the college enrollment spike during the recession ... Now that the economy is recovering, those people graduated and moved back into the (workforce),” he said, adding in some cases students are being scooped up for jobs before completing a degree.
