Recruitment becoming more difficult amid budget cuts, university officials say - MARNIE LEONARD, Daily Egyptian

As the university continues to deal with an unprecedented state budget impasse approaching the two-year mark and SIU President Randy Dunn’s recent announcement suggesting $30 million in cuts for the Carbondale campus, prospective students have been choosing to go to school elsewhere. Susan Davenport, the director of choral activities in the School of Music, said after Dunn made his announcement her college lost its top recruit. This difficulty is reflected in the university’s enrollment, which hit its lowest point since 1965 in the fall of 2016 semester, and in spring 2017 saw a decrease of 7.4 percent compared with 2016.
