Lawrence Allen, who is the Budget and Institutional Effectiveness Specialist at Suny Broome spoke about the spring enrollment numbers and what that could possibly mean for the school.
Allen explained that the numbers are lower than they were last year. However, it seems they did not drop as much as predicted. He explained that enrollment decreased by 9% instead of the 15% that they predicted last fall. He said “numbers are lower, but efficiency is the same as last year.”
The community is starting to get past Covid-19 restrictions and is slowly recovering. With the lift of the mask mandate on campus, the morale of the students is going up. Evidence shows that covid numbers in the county dropped heavily, causing more people to enroll and remain in school.
