This past week’s Forward 150 discussion was “Recruitment 101,” in which the retention rates of students to the university were examined in a presentation by Dr. Janice Herring-Hendon, associate vice president for enrollment services. Strategies to bring in freshman, students from other universities and receiving more graduate students were discussed within the panel. The lack of a state budget is creating an effect that trickles down to student recruitment and retainment. Students are applying and attending other state colleges and universities because the budget crisis has “created an ominous back-drop,” according to Herring-Hendon.
