There was some good news about Wichita State Universityâ€™s fall enrollment numbers, including gains in out-of-state students, incoming freshmen and the honors program. Clearly, WSU can and does compete well in certain areas. But WSUâ€™s overall enrollment has dipped for three years running, in contrast to its sister regents institutions. Thereâ€™s no arguing with some of the reasons WSU officials site for the decline, including post-Sept. 11 losses of foreign and part-time students. But how much longer will those reasons explain it all? Officials surely realize that the nontraditional students served so well by WSU can only handle so many annual tuition hikes.
