THIS DAY IN DAILY HISTORY

School of Natural Resources loses third of enrollment

Oct. 26, 1983 — The School of Natural Resources lost
almost a third of its enrollment this year, forcing the school to
consolidate some courses and eliminate others.

John Basset, the school’s associate dean, attributed the
drop to concern among prospective students over the budget cuts.
The school will undergo a 25 percent budget cut in the next five
years.

Enrollment in the school dropped to 509 students, down 29
percent from last year. Basset also attributes the drop to a lack
of interest in the field in general and high tuition rates.
