FAMU's enrollment decline impacts athletics - Jordan Culver, Tallahassee Democrat

As enrollment at Florida A&M continues to decline, the school's athletic department, which is already battling monetary woes, is preparing to withstand another financial hit. FAMU Athletic Director Milton Overton Jr. said the athletic department is projecting a student fee drop of at least $600,000 for the 2016-17 fiscal year. Enrollment at FAMU last fall was at 9,920. That number is expected to drop to 9,000 for the 2016-17 school year. Overton has said he plans to grow the athletic department's budget to $15.7 million in four years. The department's 2015-16 budget was $8,717,500.
