“Student Drought Hits Smaller Universities” was the headline topping an article about enrollment shortfall on July 25 in The Wall Street Journal. Similar articles were seen in other newspapers. The national headlines said declines in enrollment were not unique to Loyola, but Loyola was referred to as an extreme case. The article referred to some statistics including a 2.3 percent drop in college enrollment nationally and a peak in high-school graduates, according to Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education. The Wall Street Journal also said that in general, the decrease has been seen more prominently in the Midwest and South.
