Illinois' higher ed woes benefit Indiana State University - Sue Loughlin, Tribune-Star

A growing number of Illinois students deciding to attend Indiana colleges because of their home state's budget woes — and universities such as Indiana State are more than happy to accommodate them. In fact, Indiana State admissions from Illinois are up 50 percent over this time a year ago, said Indiana State president Dan Bradley. "We're getting a lot more students from Illinois," he said. "There is just so much bad news. ... My guess is that bad news creates anxiety. It's a real sad story for some of those institutions." While Indiana State has aggressively recruited in Illinois for many years and offers scholarships specifically aimed at Illinois residents, these days, "It's paying off more," the president said.
