EIU Numbers Down But Decline Less Steep

Eastern Illinois University continues to see declining enrollment but the bleeding may be slowing. Fall semester enrollment is down by five percent at the Charleston based school but that's the lowest decrease from fall to fall in six years. Enrollment for the school sits at just over 7,000 students, nearly 400 fewer than a year ago. Eastern officials believe the extended budget impasse and a statewide decline in college enrollment have contributed to shrinking numbers.
