On-campus SIU enrollment is down about 14 percent this summer compared to summer 2015. That means there are 571 fewer students taking classes on the SIU campus compared to the previous summer. And there are 1,334 fewer students taking on-campus summer classes this summer compared to summer 2014, a decline of nearly 28 percent. Total enrollment is down compared to summer 2015 about 5.1 percent, according to data SIU provided on Friday in response to a request by the newspaper. Accounting for the difference is that off-campus enrollment has continued to climb, and increased by 8.5 percent this summer compared to summer 2015.
